My question is for the Minister for Health.
What is the latest information on the development of the dedicated children’s emergency department at Maroondah Hospital as a part of the broader plan to upgrade this hospital in our community of Ringwood?
This purpose-built emergency department for kids means local families in the east can rest assured that their kids will have access to the very best health care in a dedicated and appropriate environment.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the nurses, doctors, health workers and allied health professionals at Maroondah Hospital have done a remarkable job under extremely taxing circumstances.
Local health workers and families are keen to know how this important and much-needed project at Maroondah Hospital is coming along.
