Private Hospital Redevelopment

We’re Growing

St Vincent’s Hospital in Fitzroy is growing. We’re investing $180m a new state-of-the-art 12-storey building, that will increase opportunities to share research, clinical expertise and care across our broad centres of excellence. This leadership initiative will benefit you and your family, along with an additional 20,000 patients a year.

Our Story is Your Story

Medicine is moving so fast, it is developing at a frantic pace with new skills, new ideas, new equipment and technology. The COVID-19 pandemic over the last two years has changed the face of healthcare. We have faster and innovative ways to communicate with patients and deliver their care. Stronger approaches to the whole of patient experience require greater investment in technology, equipment and best practice. 

Now we need to renovate, expand and upgrade our facilities. St Vincent’s Private opened at the existing site in 1972. It was ahead of its time then. After 50 years of alterations and adaptations the facility is in need of redevelopment. We need more operating theatres, day surgery facilities, extended and more private Intensive Care Unit facilities and patient rooms built to today’s standards. 

Your Story is Our Story

Your story may have already started with us, through the treatment and care we have given to you or your loved ones. Your healthcare journey may be in the future, or for those in the community for whom we all care, in spirit and commitment.

You are invited to share in our future by supporting the Capital Appeal for the exciting new 12-level building at St Vincent’s Private Fitzroy.

  • Six new state-of-the-art Operating Theatres
