Ms RYALL (Ringwood) — My adjournment request is to the Minister for Health. and the action I seek is for the minister to accompany me out to Maroondah Hospital to talk to and consult with my community members and residents, as well as those from surrounding communities, about their views on combining the breast cancer centre with hundreds of additional public car parks in the one single construction.
Ms RYALL (Ringwood) — Maroondah Hospital parking has been at crisis point for some time and is becoming worse as our population grows and ages. By now, under the election commitments of the former coalition government, the hospital would have had an additional 100 car parks as well as approximately 80 that the hospital was creating.
Dee Ryall MP, State Member for Ringwood has slammed the Andrews Government for failing those that are sick, and their families in the outer east. Labor has not provided any funding in the budget to address the parking crisis at Maroondah Hospital.

Ms RYALL (Ringwood) — The coalition government invested $474.5 million in hospital infrastructure to serve the Ringwood electorate, particularly the brand‑new Box Hill Hospital and the Maroondah Hospital redevelopment, and including a new 16‑bed intensive care unit and high dependency unit and a 22‑bed acute transitional care ward. Coinciding with that development, Eastern Health is establishing an additional 80 to 100 car parks for Maroondah Hospital.
