Our Facilities

Quality Healthcare in Modern Facilities

As MDHS grows and expands its services, its campuses and facilities are continually upgraded and improved. Ongoing local & State Government investment in our services ensures that we can provide high-quality healthcare in modern, fit-for-purpose facilities.

In 2021, the Victorian Government announced a $94.8 million investment in MDHS with our new facility, expected to be completed by late 2024. It will provide new birthing suites, an urgent care centre, a 32-bed inpatient unit, two operating theatres and recovery spaces, and a day medical centre with imaging and pathology services.

COIL is equipped with all the resources required to train students in a simulated hospital environment. The Learning Space features state-of-the-art technology that allows learning to be undertaken virtually.

The contemporary accommodation hub features 20 single bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, along with communal living, kitchen, dining areas and landscaped gardens. The $4 million project was funded by the Victorian Government’s Regional Health Infrastructure fund.
