The 14-story East Wing Tower will be constructed in partnership with Northwest Healthcare Properties Management and will assist in the expansion of numerous services and facilities, including:

  • Additional patient beds and expanded ICU department
  • Additional clinical spaces and theatres, including a brand-new hybrid theatre
  • A dedicated Endoscopy Suite floor
  • Expanded Orthopaedic and Oncology Services with a dedicated Wellness Centre and gymnasium
  • Additional doctor consulting suites

Epworth Eastern expands into wings

Epworth Eastern will become three distinct, but linked wings.

Arnold Wing will include the existing the hospital, acknowledging its Arnold Street location. Garden Wing will include the refurbished Medical Centre and acknowledge its connection, and proximity, to Box Hill Gardens, and East Wing will include new internal spaces within East Wing Tower.

Featuring a brand-new Hybrid Theatre

Our brand-new theatre complex will feature our Hybrid Theatre, designed to accommodate the most complex surgeries, as well as cutting-edge robotic technology, for minimally invasive procedures.

East Wing Tower will also deliver additional consulting suites, allowing our doctors and their colleagues to grow their practices, while ensuring patients have access to on site services to deliver an improved patient journey that is focused on continuity of care.

Recruitment for our redevelopment will provide our teams and our community with opportunity to work in an acute hospital setting, with some roles offering dedicated education and training opportunities to fill these skill shortage areas.
