Swan Hill and Nyah residents will have even better access to high quality health services thanks to a $200,000 Brumby Labor Government funding boost to Swan Hill District Health.
Candy Broad, Member for Northern Victoria Region announced the funding boost to Swan Hill District Health as part of the Brumby Labor Government’s $80 million Statewide Infrastructure Renewal Program.
“This funding for Swan Hill District Health is another example of the Brumby Labor Government’s commitment to ensure all Victorians have access to high quality health services,” Ms Broad.
“The renewal program supports the replacement and upgrade of critical engineering infrastructure such as boilers, chillers, electrical systems, lifts, lighting, water tanks and air conditioning.
The grant to Swan Hill District Health will fund the replacement of the electrical transformer at the Swan Hill Campus and the installation of an emergency generator at the Nyah Campus.
“The program will enable Swan Hill District Health to continue delivering safe and high quality care to patients.”
“The Brumby Labor Government is taking action to deliver the highest quality health services to all Victorians, no matter where they live,” Ms Broad said.
Health Minister, Daniel Andrews said $80 million over four years was committed by the Brumby Labor Government under the 2007/08 Statewide Infrastructure Renewal Program.
“We are committed to providing Victorians with the best possible health services they need close to where they live,” he said.
