Take a virual tour of your New Footscray Hospital

A new ‘virtual engagement room’ for the new Footscray Hospital Project has been launched today.

Due to COVID, it hasn’t been possible for Western Health’s NFH Project Team, the Victorian Health Building Authority (VHBA) and Plenary Health to meet face-to-face with the community to discuss our new hospital, share the designs, and to answer questions – as had been planned.

Instead, the creative team at VHBA has gone virtual, with a fantastic interactive site allowing anyone interested in the new Footscray Hospital to find out more online.

The virtual engagement room, launched by Member for Footscray Katie Hall, allows “visitors” to take a 3D tour of the hospital, view the designs, see interviews with the builders and follow construction milestones. It also features activities for the kids and a forum to have your questions answered.

Another highlight is the ‘time capsule’ section. We have plans to place a time capsule – with items from the current Footscray Hospital – on site at the new Footscray Hospital, and we want your feedback. You can submit your ideas in the dedicated ‘time capsule’ section on the virtual engagement room. We look forward to seeing what you come up with.

The virtual engagement room will remain open into 2022 and information will be updated as the project progresses. An accessible version of the accessible version of the virtual room information is also available.
