Ramsay Health's $13 million bid to stay in charge of Mildura Base Hospital for 10 years


RAMSAY Health Care has made a $13 million pitch to continue managing Mildura Base Hospital for the next 10 years.

The proposal was made to the Victorian Government in January and includes $9 million towards the construction of a 16 single-bed ward and upgrading the hospital’s sterilising department as well as ongoing capital investment.

Other commitments include:

• $2 million contribution to clinical training;

• $1 million contribution to Hands Up Mallee and its work with the socially disadvantaged.

• Further $1 million towards positions focused on community health and community relations activities; and

• A commitment to negotiate changing the community management model structure to ensure more open scrutiny of the hospital’s performance locally.
