Medihotels on WA Labor’s agenda

Building ‘medihotels’ alongside tertiary hospitals is the best way of freeing up hospital beds, WA’s Labor leader argues.

Pouncing on Liberal party turmoil with a campaign-style launch, Mark McGowan says that if the plan was implemented today, it would free up 54 tertiary beds in 2017–18.

The concept of medihotels is not new in Australia, with facilities currently available in Melbourne and Darwin.
