A healthy choice

Imagine a place where health and wellbeing are woven into the fabric of everyday life. Where real investments yield real results for the entire community. That’s the reality in Frankston City. Access to quality healthcare is one of the key motivating factors for people deciding to re-locate or remain within a City. Particularly amongst our increasingly ageing population.

Over the past decade, Frankston City has transformed into a key location for industry-leading health providers. Now our largest industry sector, healthcare
and social assistance, employs over 11,000 people (since 2021) and adds $1.08 billion into our economy. 

With the major $1 billion redevelopment of Peninsula Health’ Frankston Hospital, this sector continues to rapidly expand and presents a range of opportunities for primary and allied health businesses to more specialised services.

Peninsula Health, Frankston Hospital and Monash University Peninsula Campus have formed a Centre of Excellence for Alcohol and Other Drugs, looking to gain an international reputation for research specific to this health area. Meanwhile, investment in a Healthy Futures Hub in Seaford is a test case model for others to learn about how we can keep people out of hospitals and in their homes longer as they age.​

Now is the time to look again at Frankston City as it emerges as a premier healthcare destination in the south-east, where wellness for all is a priority
