 Introducing a new private emergency department at Box Hill

We will open a new private emergency department located at 1 Arnold Street to provide emergency treatment and care for patients in the east, reducing the burden placed on public nearby. 


 More space for consulting doctors

The new expansion will provide new consulting spaces for medical specialists and health professionals improving community access to health experts across a range of specialties.

 
 Increasing jobs

The expansion and redevelopment of Epworth Eastern will deliver an estimated 140 full time equivalent nursing and allied health staff, with an additional 30 full time equivalents employed for non-clinical services. This is in addition to some 50 full time equivalents employed for consulting services. 


 Box Hill Health and Education Precinct

In 2016 we signed a memorandum of understanding between Epworth Eastern and Box Hill Institute to establish an exciting new partnership that will facilitate the establishment of an integrated academic and teaching hospital.

Through this, Epworth Eastern will contribute to the education and training of environmental services associates, patient care assistants, allied health assistants, enrolled nurses, theatre technicians and many more positions.
