Planning for the new Fiona Stanley Hospital commenced 2005.  In July 2005, the Department of Health, in full consultation with the City of Melville and major stakeholders in the area, commenced the preparation of the Murdoch Activity Centre Structure Plan (external site). This was subsequently approved in February 2007 by the Western Australian Planning Commission and released in June 2007 by the State Government.  Detailed design development on the state rehabilitation service has commenced and will be finished in 2010.

Construction of the hospital buildings began in September 2009 and is expected to be finished in late 2013, ahead of the hospital’s opening in 2014. Brookfield Multiplex was appointed as the managing contractor for the Stage One contract for design and construction of the hospital in March 2009. It is estimated that more than 10,000 people will be employed on the Fiona Stanley Hospital site over the life of the project. It has been two years since the commencement of construction of Fiona Stanley Hospital. When it opens in 2014, Fiona Stanley Hospital in Murdoch will be Western Australia's flagship health facility. It will be the major tertiary hospital in the south metropolitan area and will offer health care services to communities south of Perth and across the State. The $2 billion Fiona Stanley Hospital includes the Australian Government contribution of $255.7 million for the new state rehabilitation service. It is named after eminent Western Australia doctor and Australian of the Year, Professor Fiona Stanley. The hospital will be one of the best in Australia – a leader in clinical care, research and education, supported by an innovative design that uses the latest scientific, technological and medical developments.

The $2 billion Fiona Stanley Hospital is the largest building infrastructure project ever undertaken by the State.
