We were delighted this morning to welcome Jill Hennessy MP, Victorian Minister for Health, and Nick Staikos MP, Member for Bentleigh, to Moorabbin Hospital.
They came to visit the newly refurbished Diagnostic Imaging and Outpatient areas.
The $16.2 million capital project has already made a big difference to the way Moorabbin Hospital cares for patients.
A new MRI machine and PET CT scanning technology have begun to operate at the site, with enhanced facilities for the imaging team.
Our outpatients area has also been hugely improved, with additional consultation suites and a naturally-lit, more open environment.
Director of Operations at Moorabbin Hospital, Sharon Wood, said that the upgrades have been well received by patients and staff.
“We’re really excited about how our new technology can help us deliver enhanced care for patients,” she said.
“Brighter, lighter spaces can also make a big difference for patients so we’re very pleased with our upgraded outpatient clinic.”
