The Victorian Government has established the $200 million Regional Health Infrastructure Fund as part of its commitment to better health for people in rural and regional Victoria.
The fund will provide upgrades for rural and regional hospitals to ensure Victorians, regardless of where they live, have access to quality health care when they need it.
Funding will assist regional and rural health services to improve:
– safety and quality of services
– service capacity
– models of care
– patient and staff amenity and
– service efficiency.
Projects will be determined through application-based funding rounds, with rural and regional hospitals and health services and agencies able to make submissions.
Applications close 29 August 2016.
