Werribee Mercy Hospital Expansion

Locations:

With an expansion designed to accommodate more theatres and beds, patients in the western metropolitan region will have greater access to high-quality health services.

Werribee Mercy Hospital is currently undergoing an $87 million redevelopment that will see four more levels built on top of the existing Catherine McAuley Centre.

Once complete, the expansion will deliver an extra 64 inpatient beds, which includes eight new intensive care beds, as well as six new operating theatres. With these new additions, more patients can receive high-quality care, closer to home.

This expansion will take the total number of beds at the hospital to 298. The project addresses rapidly growing demand within the Wyndham community. Population in the area is predicted to increase by another 193,000 people between 2011 and 2031. The hospital redevelopment is due for completion in 2018.

A new 370-space multi-level car park is available on the hospital site and improves parking access for patients, visitors and staff.
