Build Melton Hospital

The City of Melton recently launched a campaign calling on all parties contesting the 2018 Victorian Election to commit to building a public hospital in the City of Melton. The hospital would be located in Atherstone, close to the future Toolern Train Station.
Melton Hospital is proposed to be a 24-hour public hospital with a full range of services such as an emergency department, cardiac and intensive care, acute surgical facilities and diagnostic services.
It will create hundreds of jobs during construction, more than 200 permanent jobs from the day it opens and up to 1000 over the next 10 years for nurses, doctors and allied health professionals.
