Find my speech in Hansard

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.
