Media Release (5 March 2024)

La Trobe Private Hospital has re-opened its doors, giving residents of Melbourne’s growing northern suburbs further vital access to healthcare and treatment.

The hospital, located at La Trobe University’s Bundoora campus, was officially reopened today by Assistant Minster for Health and Aging and Member of Parliament for Cooper, the Hon. Ged Kearney MP.

Healthscope has invested more than $25 million to completely redevelop the hospital, which now comprises 34 beds, including four operating theatres and a four bed High Dependency Unit. Clinical services offered at La Trobe Private include orthopaedics, general surgery, plastic surgery, and urology, as well as a new radiology clinic and consulting suites.

La Trobe Private will also expand and enhance Healthscope’s longstanding partnership with La Trobe University, providing additional clinical education placements for La Trobe students, as well as opportunities to receive quality professional learning experiences.

Plans for the opening of La Trobe Private Hospital were finalised in June 2021. "It's very exciting to see this hospital now completed and fully operational,” Healthscope CEO Greg Horan said.

“The redevelopment and re-opening of La Trobe Private will provide critical new healthcare services in Melbourne’s rapidly growing northern corridor, as well as continue our work to support and develop the next generation of healthcare professionals.”

The new facilities will also boost the research capability of La Trobe, strengthening its partnership with Healthscope that has already generated more than 60 publications in the past four years, many of which are co-produced with Healthscope staff and consumer representatives. La Trobe University’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Theo Farrell, said; “La Trobe Private Hospital is driving healthcare innovation, as a place where world-class health care is combined with hands-on professional training and pioneering research. The hospital brings a wide range of health and education benefits to the local community while continuing to strengthen the University’s teaching, learning and research capability and excellence.”

La Trobe Private Hospital is a 34-bed hospital with a focus on orthopaedics, general surgery, plastic surgery, and urology. The hospital is located on the La Trobe University campus in Bundoora, adjacent to Plenty Road and public transport. La Trobe Private Hospital services are complemented by its sister hospital, Northpark Private Hospital located just minutes away.

Northpark Private Hospital offers a range of services, including ophthalmology, gynaecology, ENT and general surgery, maternity services including an early parenting unit. The hospital has recently opened its expanded 56 bed mental health service which includes a dedicated older person’s mental health unit.
