$21.4 million day facility in Sunbury now open

Health Minister David Davis has officially opened the new Sunbury Day Hospital as part of a community day of celebrations.

Mr Davis said the $21.4 million day hospital had already been treating dialysis patients and was now treating others.

The new hospital on Macedon Street is operated by Western Health.

The facility provides medical and surgical procedures, including renal dialysis, chemotherapy, sameday procedures and specialist clinics.

The hospital has two operating theatres with the ability to administer general anaesthesia and recovery services for minor same-day surgical procedures, a renal dialysis room, consulting rooms and office areas.

The site features the heritage-listed Ardcloney House, which was built in 1911 and once belonged to a local doctor.

The historic building was kept and now forms part of the Sunbury Day Hospital.
