Funding A "Game Changer" For The South West
South West Healthcare CEO Craig Fraser has welcomed today's announcement of a $384 million dollar funding allocation by the State Government, describing it as a game changer for the region.
Mr Fraser said the end result would be one of the most contemporary, state of the art facilities in rural Australia that will improve care, closer to home.
"It will future-proof the delivery of healthcare services in south west Victoria for the next 30 years," he says.
SWH Board Chair Mr Bill Brown thanked the State Government.
“We would like to sincerely thank the Premier, Mr Daniel Andrews and his government for his commitment to this important project that will provide long term benefits to the entire south west of Victoria" he said.
“We understand this will be the largest capital build to have ever occurred in rural Victoria and we do not take for granted the positive impact this will have, particularly into the future and on the long term health of our communities".
