State Budget funds Moyne Health Services Urgent Care Centre
The Victorian State Government has today announced that Moyne Health Services is to receive $2.1 million to construct an Urgent Care Centre and upgrade the hospital.
Moyne Health Services Board President Ralph Leutton said the urgent care centre is integral to the health service’s long term sustainability. “As a small rural health service, we play a vital role in the sub regional health care system” he said.
The urgent care centre will be integrated into the hospital’s northern end and will include X-ray facilities, a treatment room and waiting area, ambulance and pedestrian entry.
Moyne Health Services, Chief Executive Officer, David Lee said “the Urgent care centre will address our long standing concerns about patient and staff safety risk resulting from the building separation of urgent care and hospital facilities.”
“All the preliminary planning has been discussed with Moyne Shire Council and we are ready to go” he said.
The Urgent care centre project is expected to be completed early in 2017.
