La Trobe University has announced plans for a new hospital to be built at its Bundoora campus in Melbourne’s north.

The new $400 million healthcare hub will sit on a 3.5-hectare parcel of university-owned land.

The proposed location of the new health hub next to Plenty Road already has an existing medical centre and small 39-bed hospital.

Plans detail a private hospital, primary healthcare clinic, aged and childcare centres to be built on its main Bundoora campus in Melbourne’s north.

The new hospital will include primary healthcare and clinical services, as well as expanded space for aged care, rehabilitation, prosthetics, nursing and psychology.

“Services could include a sub‐acute hospital, primary healthcare and clinical services, as well as expanded space for aged care, rehabilitation, prosthetics, nursing and psychology," La Trobe University vice-president Natalie MacDonald said.

“There’s also a need for additional aged care capacity in the region.”

La Trobe doesn't offer medicine but currently has nursing, physiotherapy, podiatry, psychology, prosthetics, pharmacy, biomedicine and social work.

The university is now seeking development and operating partners after appointed professional services firm EY to run an expression of interest process.

“EY will also look for primary healthcare, childcare and aged care organisations offering broader health and social services,” MacDonald said

Construction is expected to start late-2019.
