More Wyndham patients will get the high quality and safe care they deserve with the Andrews Labor Government giving hospitals the latest life-saving medical equipment and upgrading vital infrastructure so they can continue doing what they do best – saving lives.

Member for Werribee Tim Pallas announced Mercy Health was one of 26 health services around the state to share in $60 million from the latest funding round of the Medical Equipment Replacement Program and the Engineering Infrastructure Replacement Program.

Cutting-edge equipment funded as part of the programs includes CT units, digital x-ray units, ultrasounds, operating room microscopes and heart imaging equipment such as transesophageal echocardiogram units.

Mercy Health will receive more than $1.16 million for hospital medical equipment and engineering infrastructure replacements and upgrades.

It’s part of the Labor Government’s $7 billion pipeline of health infrastructure projects – the largest health building program in the state’s history.

A record $2.5 billion investment in our health system will help meet the needs of our growing state, meaning that more patients will receive care, treatment and surgeries sooner.
