My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Health. Following the announcement to build a new dedicated children’s emergency department at Maroondah Hospital, our Ringwood community was delighted when funding was allocated to commence the planning work for an expanded adult emergency department in this year’s budget. This project will give our fantastic health workers the facilities they need to see so we get the best possible care when we need it whilst creating hundreds of jobs during the process. The action I seek is for the minister to provide an update to our community on the progress of this important planning work and the role it plays in transforming the Maroondah Hospital complex into a modern hospital and health facility to meet the growing needs of our community.
