Mackay MP Julieanne Gilbert said that the inclusion of rooms with their own ensuites was critical.

“These provisions are there for what we’re so acutely aware of at the moment, infectious diseases, where you can isolate patients.”

She said that the Sarina Hospital was well overdue for an upgrade.

“It’s very old it’s had bits and pieces added to it, ad hoc. It was purpose-built back in its day a very very long time ago.”

Shovels are expected to hit the ground on the 19-bed facility by the end of the year.
