The New Royal Women’s Hospital - a public private partnership

Tabled: 25 June 2008

Overview

In October 2003 the State Government of Victoria announced the construction of a new Royal Women’s Hospital, to be located on a site next to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in Parkville. The new hospital is intended to be one of the southern hemisphere’s leading women’s hospitals, delivering accessible, effective and high quality services to Victorian women and their newborn babies.

The newly-built hospital in Parkville has been procured by contracting the private sector, under the Partnerships Victoria framework, to design, build, finance and maintain the facility for 25 years from mid-June 2008 onwards.
