Only Labor will build a new women and children’s hospital for the West

An Andrews Labor Government will build the Western Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Sunshine.

The Western Women’s and Children’s Hospital will provide 237 beds, 39 special care nursery cots, four new operating theatres and additional clinics, catering for the needs of a booming and diverse population.

Our sickest babies need to be cared for close to their mums, in the best facilities.

Just as the Royal Children’s is an icon of our state, Labor’s new hospital will be the pride and joy of the West.

Melbourne’s West is one of the fastest growing areas in Australia and we need to act right now.

Under the Liberals, our hospitals are in crisis; Under a Labor government, health will be our number one priority.
