A 75-bed hospital within Sunshine’s Health Wellbeing and Education precinct has opened in the western suburbs of Melbourne, Australia.
The $140m Sunshine Private Hospital will provide essential private healthcare facilities to the rapidly expanding population in Melbourne’s western suburbs.
The government of Victoria has identified this hospital as a key infrastructure project.
The hospital features an endoscopy suite, four operating rooms, a 30-bed medical and surgical ward, a 21-bed women’s mental health inpatient section, mental health outpatient services, counselling rooms, and sleep study facilities.
Sunshine Private Hospital is claimed to be the country’s first fully electric private hospital that has a five-star Green Star rating, which is considered the highest environmental standard for buildings and communities.
Among the major medical facilities close to the hospital include Capital Radiology, Fresenius Dialysis, Royal Children’s Hospital, Monash IVF, and Melbourne Pathology.

Sunshine Private Hospital is run by Unitas Healthcare as its main tenant under a 30-year lease agreement. It is owned by the $3.8bn Healthcare Property Trust of Australian Unity.
The hospital is anticipated to undergo further expansion in the future, which will raise the number of inpatient beds and surgical rooms to keep up with local demand and patients’ evolving healthcare demands.
Unitas Healthcare CEO Dr. Malak Sukkar said: “Sunshine Private Hospital will transform healthcare delivery in Melbourne’s west and greatly improve outcomes for women.”
“With the population of Melbourne’s west booming and set to gain more than half a million new residents by 2036, it’s clear that specialist medical and surgical services are urgently needed to meet community needs and ensure patients are not travelling excessive distances for care.”
“It’s a monumental day for healthcare in the west as we join Sunshine’s Health Wellbeing and Education Precinct and deliver excellent patient outcomes to local residents. We are also proud to play a role in supporting women of the west for years to come with bespoke services, including women’s mental health.”
The general manager of Australian Unity’s Healthcare Property Trust Chris Smith said: “The hospital’s facilities will deliver vital health infrastructure for Melbourne’s west and long-term value to investors in Australian Unity’s Healthcare Property Trust.”
