New student accommodation opens at Maryborough and District Hospital

New, modern student accommodation is now available at the Maryborough and District Hospital.

The $4 million facility provides a comfortable and convenient place for medical, nursing and allied health students to stay during training and work placements.

The new accommodation will help attract more undergraduate and postgraduate students to kick start their careers in the healthcare sector. It complements state-of-the-art training facilities and education programs already available in Maryborough.

Funded through the Regional Health Infrastructure Fund, the new facility includes:

  • 20 single bedrooms with ensuite bathroom
  • communal living, kitchen and dining areas
  • landscaped gardens.

The project was delivered by the Maryborough District Health Service in partnership with the Victorian Health Building Authority.
