DINGEE BUSH NURSING CENTRE UPGRADE

Monday, 26 March 2018

 

More patients in the Dingee district will get the high quality care they need sooner thanks to an Andrews Labor Government funding boost to support the expansion of their services at the Dingee Bush Nursing Centre.

Member for Bendigo East, Jacinta Allan MP today announced the Centre would receive $5603 through the first round of the Labor Government’s new Regional Health Infrastructure Fund.

The $200 million fund – the largest of its kind in Victorian history – will rebuild rural and regional hospitals to ensure all Victorians can access the high quality care and facilities they need, no matter where they live. 

For the Dingee Bush Nursing Centre we are investing $5,603 to provide service expansion support by enabling integration and coordination of services with other regional providers.

This investment will mean better and safer care for patients and modern facilities for staff by improving efficiency and access.  

The Victorian Budget 2016 /17 provided an extra $2.45 billion for health so hospitals can admit more patients, reduce waiting times, upgrade buildings and infrastructure, and keep Victorians healthy.
