MinterEllison Helps Deliver Victoria's Largest Ever Health Infrastructure Investment

March, 2021 - Australia

After months of rigorous negotiations with the winning consortium, The Hon. Martin Foley, Minister for Health, has signed the contracts that will deliver the $1.5 billion new Footscray Hospital Project.

The new Footscray Hospital will support the increasing demand from Melbourne’s booming western suburbs, ensuring families can get the care they need close to home. This is the largest ever health infrastructure investment in the state's history.

MinterEllison's involvement in this project highlights their commitment to delivering ambitious infrastructure projects that have significant social and economic impact.

The firm's lead partner on this project, Stewart Nankervis comments: "The past 12 months have shown us all again that the care we provide our communities is of upmost importance. The entire team has been motivated by the prospect of delivering a project that maximises the best health outcomes for Melbourne and we look forward to seeing the finished product doing just that."

This work was led by partners Stewart Nankervis and Owen Cooper, together with Peter Block, Geoff Earl, Brett DCruz, Elouise Blunt, Alyssa Dixon, Anna Stephenson and Chris Grant.
