Peel Health Campus announcement - back in public hands in 2023
Friday 04 Dec 2020
This week the state government announced that the Peel Health Campus (currently run by the for-profit healthcare company Ramsay Health Care), will brought back into public hands at the end of the contract in 2023. This is a huge win for the Peel-Murray locals with their public health services to be provided by public sector health workers. Spending health dollars ethically demands transparency in investments made on behalf of the public, however private hospitals are not required to report on their clinical and financial performance in the same manner as their public hospital peers. Over 890 workers will join our public sector health workforce through the change. Many Ramsay employees are HSUWA members and we look forward to working with our members in this significant transition.
