Royal Children’s Hospital
Regional Health Infrastructure Fund
The Budget also includes a $100 million to boost the – already the biggest dedicated fund of its kind in our state’s history – to ensure regional Victorians are getting the best care, wherever they live.
And with a growing population, this year’s Budget ensures we’re looking towards tomorrow, investing in the hospitals and healthcare of the future. That includes:
Five new dedicated children’s emergency departments
$5.9 million to plan five new dedicated children’s emergency departments at Northern Hospital, Frankston Hospital, Casey Hospital, Maroondah Hospital and Geelong University Hospital, giving parents peace of mind that their kids will get the calm and compassionate care in the moments that matter most.
$2.3 million to plan for the first stage of a new Melton Hospital, with work to determine the location, size and range of services this growing community requires.
We promised the people of Victoria we would continue to build a hospital system they – and their families – could rely on. This year’s Budget delivers on that commitment, investing $5.5 billion over the next four years to ensure every Victorian can get the best care, in the very best facilities.
