THE Victorian Coalition will fund two public beds at the Euroa Hospital and an ambulance service for Nagambie if re-elected later this month.
The announcements come after concerted community campaigns in both Euroa and Nagambie.
In the case of the acute beds for the Euroa Bush Nursing Hospital, Health Mnister David Davis said under the new plan, the hospital would provide post surgical, medical support and palliative care.
“Patients with acute conditions will be able to move from Goulburn Valley Health back to Euroa for the final stages of their recovery,” Mr Davis said.
The minister said the two Euroa beds were among a total of ten to be funded at bush nursing hospitals across the state.
“This initiative will ensure regional communities can receive the health care they need closer to home,” he said.
