Land for the Clyde North Ambulance Station has been secured at 69 Matterhorn Drive, Clyde North, Melbourne.
Planning for the facility is underway and is expected to be completed by 2022.
The station builds on the area’s new Peak Period Unit, providing an additional eight paramedics and operating seven days a week.
Parliamentary Secretary for Health Steve McGhie said the new, permanent, ambulance station will ensure the people in Clyde North continue to benefit from our record investment in ambulance services and paramedic.
“Extra paramedics are already working hard to provide high quality healthcare for those in Clyde North who need it most and this new station will mean our paramedics have the state-of-the-art facilities to match.”

In addition, the location for the Cranbourne Community Hospital will be 65 Berwick-Cranbourne Road, Cranbourne East.
The new hospital will provide integrated community health services, specialist appointments, paediatric care, mental health services, dental services, diagnostic pathology and imaging, dialysis, after-hours urgent care, day surgery and rehabilitation services.
Services at the site will be an expansion of those currently provided by Monash Health at the Cranbourne Integrated Care Centre to help take the pressure off of nearby major hospitals.
Casey Council will soon commence a public consultation process on the sale of land to the State Government, and community members will be invited to provide their feedback.
“We’re proud to be delivering a new community hospital for the Cranbourne community – our preferred location will ensure staff, patients and their visitors, care can easily access the services they need, close to home,” Member for Cranbourne Pauline Richards said.
