Alpine Health receives major infrastructure funding boost from the Regional Health Infrastructure Fund

9 December 2020

Alpine Health has been successful in its application for 2019-2020 Round 4 funding from the Victorian Government Regional Health Infrastructure Fund to upgrade its Fire & Electrical Safety Audit Requirements and Legionella Water Treatment & Security.

The Regional Health Infrastructure Fund was established by the Victoria Government in 2016 to improve health services and agencies in rural and regional Victoria. The funding is available to expand capacity, improve safety, quality and efficiency and deliver better care to patients, no matter where they live.

Alpine Health CEO, Nick Shaw said “We are very pleased our application for funding has been successful. The funding is significant in ensuring our facilities have the required fire and electrical, and water infrastructure to ensure the safety of staff, residents and patients, and the services we deliver.”

The Fire & Electrical Safety Audit Requirements project is of major importance given the recent bushfires in January 2020. The Fire & Electrical Safety Audit Requirements project will see significant upgrades across each of Alpine Health facilities to fire and electrical protection infrastructure and include upgrades to fire panels, residential facility sprinkler systems and electrical switch boards.

The Legionella Water Treatment & Security project provides Alpine Health the opportunity to mitigate the risks associated with Legionella through the installation of water treatment infrastructure within the Bright, Mount Beauty and Myrtleford facilities. 

The major projects are expected to commence in early 2021.
