THE Coalition will provide $5 million for a cardiac catheterisation lab at Albury hospital if elected on September 7.
The election promise was made this morning in Wodonga by member for Indi Sophie Mirabella and member for Farrer Sussan Ley.
They were joined by Albury Wodonga Health board chairman Ulf Ericsson and chief executive Dr Stuart Spring for the announcement.
The lab will mean local patients will be able to access treatment closer to home rather than having to go to Melbourne or Sydney.
The election promise follows a recent visit to Albury by shadow health minister Peter Dutton.
