Sunshine Private Hospital enters Voluntary Administration

Sunshine Private Hospital in Melbourne’s west enters voluntary administration after 14 months of operation


The company behind Sunshine Private Hospital in Melbourne's west has entered voluntary administration, forcing hospital management to cancel surgeries and move patients to other hospitals.
In a statement from Wexted Advisors, administrators said funding to continue to operate the hospital was not available, leading to administrators winding down operations.

"The administrators have commenced working with management to cancel day surgery operations, notify the Victorian Department of Health, and relocate patients to other hospitals," the statement said.
"Limited staff have been retained to assist with patient care and oversee an orderly wind down of hospital operations over the next few days."

When a hospital enters voluntary administration, it signifies severe financial distress, necessitating a temporary transfer of control to administrators to explore options such as restructuring or finding buyers to salvage the business.

Sunshine Private Hospital went into voluntary administration, prompting immediate actions to cancel surgeries and relocate patients to other facilities. This situation underscores the hospital's critical financial challenges, requiring urgent intervention to manage its operations and financial obligations while seeking sustainable solutions​.

Voluntary administration is generally seen as a last resort to avoid liquidation.

The administrators are tasked with assessing the company's financial situation and reporting back to creditors, who will then decide on the future course of action, which might include restructuring, selling the business, or in some cases, closing it down if no viable solution is found.​
