Cancer cen­tre un­cer­tainty

Townsville Bulletin - - National Snapshot -

THE fate of the Olivia New­ton-John Cancer Cen­tre in Mel­bourne is un­cer­tain, with the new Vic­to­rian gov­ern­ment say­ing there is a ‘‘ black hole’’ in fund­ing the pro­ject. Six out of eight storeys of the site at the Austin Hos­pi­tal in Hei­del­berg are com­plete, but some $ 40 mil­lion is needed to com­plete the in­ter­nal fit-out of three wards, in­clud­ing 92 beds, and an­other floor for re­search. Health Min­is­ter David Davis said a de­ci­sion on whether or not the coali­tion gov­ern­ment would fund the pro­ject would be sub­ject to nor­mal bud­get pro­cesses.
