GV Health welcomes the State budget which recognises the growing overall needs our region and a willingness to put dollars back into services to assist with growth for the future.
The $1m injection will enable us to develop a comprehensive bid for the capital redevelopment at the Graham St campus. This shows great promise for the future.
It is encouraging to see dollars committed to the bed rescue fund. While $200m was allocated across the state, a portion of that will be allocated to GV Health that will enable the expansion of the medical ward by eight beds (taking the bed count from 32 to 40). This will enable approx. 635 extra people to be treated each year in the GV Health medical ward.
