I’m pleased to announce that a re-elected majority Gutwein Liberal Government will provide $2 million to The Hobart Clinic towards its $19 million redevelopment at its Rokeby site.
The current facility is ageing and no longer fit for purpose, and this funding will help the Clinic to rebuild as a modern 48 bed facility.
The Clinic is Tasmania’s leading private charitable treatment centre, providing mental health services for conditions such as anxiety, mood disorders, depression, drug and alcohol addiction and memory loss.
The facility provides support to hundreds of Tasmanians out of its current 27 bed facility.
This expansion will help to ease the pressure on the state’s mental health services, with the funding to be provided as part of our $20 million commitment to support our private hospitals and community nursing and home care sector. This helps take pressure off the public system, helping more Tasmanians get the care they need.
Only a re-elected majority Gutwein Liberal Government has a clear plan to secure Tasmania’s future and provide support to those who need it the most.
