09 Sep Premier Daniel Andrews announces emergency department redevelopment
On Sunday 8 September we were delighted to welcome Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews and the Victorian Minister for Health Jenny Mikakos MP to Monash Medical Centre to launch our emergency department redevelopment project.
Major works are about to commence on the project, which will deliver an expanded emergency department and a new, dedicated paediatric emergency department for Monash Children’s Hospital. A separate emergency treatment area will be created to treat patients with complex needs.
Monash Medical Centre sees over 90,000 emergency patients a year. This figure rises each year, and increasing demand means the facilities are in need of an upgrade and expansion. The construction project ahead will include a dedicated entry for ambulances, allowing faster access to life-saving care. Major works commence soon and the whole project is expected to be complete in 2022.
