Wheatbelt hospitals to benefit from works

CENTRAL Wheatbelt MLA Mia Davies has welcomed news builders have been invited to express their interest in the upcoming works on the Northam and Merredin hospitals.

They are among five country hospitals which will be redeveloped as part of the Southern Inland Health Initiative’s $300 million capital works program.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for local builders to benefit from a development that will not only improve local health facilities, but will also strengthen their position economically,” she said.

“These works will ensure Northam and other hospitals are well equipped to provide a more enhanced and modern delivery of emergency healthcare, key clinical areas and outpatient services.”
