Matthew Guy plans to build the 275 bed Royal Children’s Hospital in Werribee.

Opposition leader Matthew Guy has promised to build a new $900 million 275-bed Royal Children’s Hospital campus in Werribee if elected in November.

Residents have welcomed the opposition’s pledge to build a $900 million Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne’s fast-growing western suburbs, where children and families will benefit from a world-class healthcare facility thanks to the recent pledge.

In addition to the 11 major hospitals he has promised to build or rehabilitate so far, Mr. Guy is making his biggest healthcare funding announcement yet.

The opposition continues to attack the current Andrews government for its handling of escalating health system problems.

Opposition health spokeswoman Georgie Crozier says the Labor government’s mismanagement of the health system since 2014 has pushed it to the limit.

“Under Daniel Andrews and Labour, Western Melbourne’s health has been neglected for decades, meaning too many families are struggling to get the care they need, when they need it,” says Crozier

A resident of Werribee South, Dr. Joe Garra, a family doctor and taxpayer, welcomed the plan to accommodate the area’s growing population.

Mr Guy told that Herald Sun “As Prime Minister, my first priority will be to resolve the health crisis and ensure all Victorians receive the care they deserve.”

According to Guy, Melbourne’s west has been overlooked and taken for granted.

“Melbourne West has been neglected and taken for granted for too long. My government will respect, invest and deliver the fastest growing community in the state.”

The location and range of services for the new Royal Children’s Hospital in Werribee will be determined in consultation with the Royal Children’s Hospital and the local communities.

“This hospital is a true medical emergency solution and will provide better medical care closer to home for residents of Wyndham and the surrounding areas,” said Mr. Guy

In addition, Guy has pledged to ensure that all Victorian schools have mental health professionals on their staff.

Guy has also pledged to end the Suburban Rail Loop project and divert any available funds towards restoring the health care system.

Work confirmed on Thursday Two pediatric respiratory clinics will open in North Melbourne and Monash in the coming weeks to ease the pressure on emergency rooms for patients who need medical attention.

During the press conference at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Parkville, Guy spoke shortly after Andrews and Health Secretary Mary-Anne Thomas announced the new children’s respiratory clinics.
