Djerriwarrh Health Services

Mr Howard – (Buninyong) (14:03:28) — Last Thursday I was pleased to visit Djerriwarrh Health Services in Bacchus Marsh to announce the $468 000 upgrade of the central sterile stock department at this important local hospital. This funding will improve processing, storage and distribution of sterile goods throughout patient care areas. This upgrade will occur alongside a major $9 million rebuild of the operating theatre suites at Djerriwarrh, which was also committed to by the Andrews government. On top of this, a further $1.6 million refurbishment and expansion of the maternity unit will improve access, care and comfort for mothers and babies after birth. The Andrews Labor government’s $200 million Regional Health Infrastructure Fund is rebuilding rural and regional health services to ensure people can access safe, quality health care closer to home.
