Work on the project should be completed by mid-December.


It’s been a few years in the making, but the long-awaited cancer and dialysis unit in Seymour is almost here.

The front of the Seymour District Memorial Hospital has been transformed into a building site for the $2.6million project, and it is scheduled for completion in mid-December.

Seymour Health chief executive Chris McDonnell said many people had asked about what was going to be provided.

‘‘It’ll range from support through to, eventually, chemotherapy,’’ he said.

‘‘It’s going to be a prominent part of our service being at the front of the building ... the need for dialysis is growing and growing and with our additional chairs we should be able to provide that six days a week.’’

There would be seven dialysis and cancer services chairs and there would also be the ability for telemedicine, allowing patients to consult with Melbourne specialists while having a nurse or other health practitioner in the room with them.
