Better health care

The Andrews Labor Government will deliver a community hospital in Craigieburn, allowing local residents to access excellent health care close to home – including after-hour services.

The new hospital will be delivered on the existing Craigieburn Health Service site, located on Craigieburn Road.  Planning for this facility is now underway, with construction to commence soon.

Recently a major rebuilding and refurbishment project at the Northern Hospital was completed, with $162.7 million to expand and enhance facilities.

We will also build a new, dedicated children’s emergency department at the Northern Hospital, taking significant pressure off the existing emergency department and ensuring local children can get fast access to quality medical attention when they need it most. Construction of the new emergency department will commence in 2021.

By comparison, the previous Liberal Government oversaw a massive blowout in ambulance waiting times.
