The city of Shepparton is a major regional hub, not only for the diverse communities of Shepparton District but also the broader north-east of Victoria and parts of southern NSW.
Since I was first elected in 2014, we have achieved $170 million to begin the long overdue redevelopment of our hospital. Construction of the first stage is underway, but there's more to achieve to ensure we have access to the best standard of healthcare possible.
My health vision for a proudly independent Shepparton District includes:
- All stages completed at Goulburn Valley Health with first class services and an integrated cancer centre;
- A residential mother-baby unit to help families give their children the best start to life; and
- An allied health hub at the Hunter Building to alleviate pressures on the hospital and provide the community with easy and holistic access to services.
