Bundaberg hospital shifting patients south to ease overcrowding
The State Government’sm카지노 Health Minister Andrew Hill has announced about 600 patients had been moved to new accommodation overnight.
The Bambu Spring hospital is in Bundaberg’s northern suburbs and is being operated by a private contractor, the Hospital Commission, operated by Medibank.
Mr Hill says the state Government will pay for the new accommodation to the Hospital Commission.
“It will cover half of the facility’s needs and it’s being constructed over the next two years, so over two-and-a-half years, if that is funded, the facility will be in the right hands to address any excess and capacity issues and the need to reduce waiting lists,” he said.
Mr Hill says the new accommodation is an opportunity for the community to come together and say thank you.
He says the Government will make sure those unable to be taken care of within the hospital will be brought back to Bundaberg.
