Together Peninsula Private and Beleura Private Hospitals provide the most dynamic healthcare available to the Frankston, Mornington and surrounding communities. These two hospitals are within twenty kilometres of each other on the Mornington Peninsula. Peninsula Private is located 45-65 kilometres outside of Melbourne’s Central Business district.
Peninsula Private Hospital is located in the bay-side community of Frankston in Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs. Peninsula Private Hospital is well positioned and strategically placed between two major Public Healthcare networks – the Peninsula Health Network located in Frankston and the Southern Healthcare Network at Clayton/Dandenong. This position is further enhanced by its location in the corridor of one of the fastest population growth areas of Melbourne – the Shire of Casey, which incorporates Cranbourne.
On 22 August 2016, the hospital will open its newest major development which includes a 24 hour, 14 bay Emergency Department, 60 new private inpatient rooms, new Radiology and Pathology facilities as well as a 24 hour retail Pharmacy. With 253 beds, Peninsula Private Hospital provides comprehensive emergency, medical, surgical, cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery, oncology and obstetric services. The hospital currently has 6 operating theatres including a hybrid operating room, new cardiac angiography suite and a 7 bed Intensive Care Unit.
The maternity unit offers 18 single rooms, 3 delivery suites and a nursery. Along with our highly skilled visiting medical practitioners, Peninsula Private Hospital provides excellent medical, surgical and obstetric care for our patients.
Senior doctors are in the building 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and of course a team of Intensive Care Specialists provide expert care to patients in ICU. Intensivists are also available to assist with complex patient care outside of the ICU.
A significant expansion of the hospital is currently underway to construct an additional 71 inpatient beds and a 14 bed Emergency Department.
