Johnstaff & St Vincents Hospital

2017 – Ongoing

The ACMD development is a translational biomedical research and training hub, uniquely embedded within the St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne Campus, uniting eight institutions and affiliate research and industry partners designed to attract and retain biomedical expertise in Victoria.

When complete, the ACMD development will feature:

  • state-of-the-art laboratories with shared access to platform technologies;
  • workshop and bio-fabrication facilities;
  • start-up and industry spaces; and education and conference

It will be the place where innovations are invented, techniques pioneered and breakthroughs made, which are then carried around Australia and the world, by industry partners, and the steady stream of people who come to train in Melbourne.

ACMD will comprise of two main components, the first being the Decant Works to enable demolition of the existing Aikenhead Wing, and the second Main Works to deliver a new purpose-built multi-level tower including basement carparking (potentially delivered in stages).
