Back in Melbourne for todays job.
It was just a few weeks ago that Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban were at the hospital visiting some of the young patients, and today saw the media back there for the announcement of the construction of the $250 million hospital getting underway.
Victorian premier Dennis Napthine turned the first sod in front of the assembled media at the site of the new hospital this morning, with the promise of 230 new beds by 2016 in the new state of the art facility.
The majority of the funding has been granted but I’m sure the hospital would be grateful to receive donations to make this facility truly great for all those that will make use of it. Donate at http://newchildrenshospital.org/home-mch
