Capital works or recent imprivements

In May 2014 a new seven-bed, sub-acute/rehabilitation service at Roma Hospital will open. This new unit will provide geriatric evaluation and management, as well as rehabilitation services and ambulatory clinics including pain management, dementia and memory services, a continence clinic and a mobility clinic. The sub-acute unit is available for the whole of the South West region.

A $3 million upgrade at Roma Hospital that includes updating of essential fire compartmentation and electrical safety systems was completed in February 2014.

The Maranoa Midwifery Group Practice was launched in May 2013 and has received enthusiastic support from local families, and the wider community. Under this model, most women now receive the benefits of Continuity of Midwifery Care from a known midwife who supports them during pregnancy, labour and birth, and up to six weeks after the birth. The Maranoa Midwifery Group practice is supported by local midwives, nurses, medical officers, and the Flying Obstetrician.
