Health and Hopsitals Fund: Dawson Electorate

(Question No. 642)

Mr Christensen asked the then Minister for Health and Ageing, in writing, on 11 October 2011:

In respect of the recent Health and Hospitals Fund, Round 3, did her department receive any applications from the Dawson electorate; if so, (a) can she indicate what projects they were for, and (b) were any such applications rejected; if so, on what grounds.

Ms Plibersek: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

I can advise that on 10 May 2011 the Australian Government announced that as part of the 2011-12 Federal Budget, funding of $3 million was being provided to Mercy Health for the expansion of the operating theatre at the Mater Misericordiae Hospital in Mackay. This project will increase the hospital’s surgical capacity and service provision to the wider Mackay region.
