New Salvation Army Building and New Opportunities for Students


17 June 2019

Box Hill Institute CEO Vivienne King joined Epworth Eastern hospital representatives and Whitehorse Mayor Bill Bennett at the building site of The Salvation Army’s new place of worship for a sod turning ceremony.

Box Hill Institute will deliver training for a new generation of enrolled nurses, patient care assistants, allied health assistants, theatre technicians, food handling, environmental management, maintenance, and ward management courses.

A commercial arrangement allowing students to operate the hospital’s café and florist will allow them to gain hands-on retail and commercial experience in future developments.

The project is expected to bring in up to 1,568 residents, workers and students to the precinct, which will generate an extra $9 million a year to the local economy.
