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 kilometres outside of Melbourne’s Central Business district.
Peninsula Private Hospital is a comprehensive 253 bed acute emergency, surgical, medical, cardiac and obstetric facility located in the bay-side suburb of Frankston in Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs. The 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.
The Hospital has a 14 bay private Emergency Department, 6 operating theatres including a hybrid operating room, new cardiac angiography suite and a 7 bed Intensive Care Unit with the building of a new Cardiac Catheter Lab and 4 additional ICU beds currently underway. There are radiology and pathology departments on site as well as a 24 hour retail Pharmacy.
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.
Peninsula Private Hospital is continuing to expand to meet the growing demand with plans aproved for further developments in 2018. The developments will include 2 state of the art operating theatres, 66 inpatient beds, 6 day oncology chairs and increased on-site parking.
