Funding for Horsham and Dimboola Hospitals
The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy MP congratulates the Wimmera Health Care Group and the local community who has secured a $1.2 million funding boost.
“I have previously spoken in Parliament and raised concerns regarding the need for health infrastructure funding across the Lowan Electorate,” Ms Kealy said.
The State Government will provide the $1.2 million through the first round of the $200 million Regional Health Infrastructure Fund.
Horsham and Dimboola Campuses will share in $634,245 to upgrade medical records, telephone and ICT infrastructure. Horsham will further receive $90,741 for the replacement of the intensive care unit patient monitoring system and $500,000 for the installation of fire sprinklers in the acute building.
“Our country region needs and deserves our fair share of Hospital capital funding and this is great news of our local area” Ms Kealy said.
“We all deserve quality health services, whether we live in the city or the country, and it is important country communities are provided with first-class facilities.
“We have fantastic local clinical staff who deserve to be provided with quality facilities to support them in delivering the best possible standard of care to our people,” she said.
