Chief MInister Gallagher has proudly announced the expansion of the Emergency Department and Intensive Care Unit at Canberra Hospital:
Capacity in the Canberra Hospital’s Emergency Department (ED) and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) has received a boost following the opening of a new three storey extension to existing clinical space by Chief Minister and Minister for Health, Katy Gallagher, today.
“This extension to the Canberra Hospital ED and ICU will boost the capacity of available bed spaces by eight in the Emergency Department and seven in the ICU and provide extra floor space for emergency treatments at TCH,” the Chief Minister said.
The ED extension was jointly funded by the Commonwealth Government and the ACT Government with a $3.9 million and $3.6 million injection respectively.
A much better way to improve statistics.
