Development News - November 2021
With the support of our surgeons and hospital Board, Vermont Private Hospital has continued to thrive, and in late 2020 we committed to a significant expansion, which will ultimately:
- Increase our operating capacity to five theatres
- Expand our overnight ward to 19 private beds, each with their own ensuite
- Establish a separate ward entrance
- Deliver a purpose built CSSD to accommodate our growing orthopaedic services, allowing us to provide a standalone day surgery unit
- Expand our main reception area and improving the patient experience
- Create additional office space to facilitate the required growth in back end administrative services
We are delighted to announce the first stage of this expansion is complete, and we are now welcoming patients to our new ward.

Located within the landmark Vermont South Medical Centre at 645 Burwood Highway, in Vermont South, Vermont Private Hospital is the result of a collaboration with Sovereign Healthcare, in which community demand for a medical centre incorporating a short stay hospital and medical hub was identified.
Opening in October 2016, Vermont Private Hospital was built as a bespoke surgical facility, developed in partnership and consultation with some of Melbourne’s leading surgeons. The hospital has grown to service a range of short stay medical specialties including ophthalmology, orthopaedic surgery, pain management and spinal neurosurgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and more.
Initially opening with three of its four theatres operational, surgeon demand led to the commissioning of the fourth operating theatre in late 2019, supporting the growth of the Nexus model of short stay, no-gap model of care for joint surgery. In August 2021, Vermont Private Hospital entered the second phase of a two stage expansion, and has recently opened its expanded 16 bed ward.
Vermont Private Hospital was built to bring world class service to the local south east Melbourne community. We work closely with our surgeons and their rooms to understand the individual needs of each patient, and tailor our service to each individual.
Vermont Private Hospital Director of Nursing, Fiona Langley, leads a collaborative can-do culture, where everyone owns the patient experience. Our hospital staff are focused on delivering service excellence in a warm, welcoming environment.
