MALDON HOSPITAL UPGRADE TO GIVE PATIENTS HIGHER QUALITY CARE

Member for Member for Bendigo West, Maree Edwards MP, today announced Maldon Hospital would receive over $340,000 through the first round of the Labor Government’s new Regional Health Infrastructure Fund.

Maldon Hospital patients will get the high quality care they need sooner thanks to the Andrews Labor Government funding boost to provide a dementia friendly outdoor living area at the hospital.

The $200 million fund – the largest of its kind in Victorian history – will rebuild rural and regional hospitals to ensure all Victorians can access the high quality care and facilities they need, no matter where they live.

 

The Victorian Budget 2016/17 provided an extra $2.45 billion for health so hospitals can admit more patients, reduce waiting times, upgrade buildings and infrastructure, and keep Victorians healthy.

 

“For Jessie Bowe House at Maldon Hospital, we are investing $341,431 to build a dementia friendly outdoor living area that will provide shelter from the weather and a gardening activity area.”

“This investment will secure the future of our local health service and make a real difference to the lives of patients who will get the safe, high quality care and treatment they need.”

 

“Our dedicated staff at Maldon Hospital does a remarkable job. We are supporting them to do their job in providing quality care and keeping locals healthy by giving them the modern facilities they truly deserve.”
