Monash Hospital Proposal

We’ve had word that the Monash IVF facility is relocating from East Melbourne ¬†and is considering an existing four storey building at 50 Burwood Road Hawthorn (opposite St James park). No external physical buildings, additions or works changes are proposed. The proposal will be for a 31 bed maternity ward, consulting suites, operating theatres and ancillary shops on the ground flour (chemist, pathology etc.).

The main concern would be the track record of hospitals that border residential areas expanding into those areas. Cabrini hospital is an example of this. Do we want a hospital precinct in this area? Comments please.
