Weather slows $500,000 Millicent hospital upgrade

INCLEMENT weather has delayed the Millicent and District Hospital’s $500,000 infrastructure upgrade, with the fire response system expected to be completed by October.

Country Health SA South East regional director Jayne Downs said the exact completion date is uncertain as it is dependent on the weather.

“Large water tanks and a new pump system are being installed to ensure the water pressure in the precinct’s fire sprinkler system is maintained at the right level at all times,” she said.

“The cement pad for the tanks and pump has been laid and the tender for the new car park is closed and the process to select a developer is about to begin.”
