Peel Health Campus benefits from maintenance blitz

PEEL Health Campus will receive $525,000 for maintenance works.

Peel health sites will also benefit from the investment of more than $640,000 in new funding to address priority upgrades and maintenance works.

Murray District Hospital will receive $40,000 for important maintenance work.

The funding is part of the State Government’s priority hospital maintenance blitz to create regional jobs.

The government has committed $81.5 million to a job-creating health service maintenance package.

It is hoped the funding will boost the economy and create almost 1300 jobs including nearly 600 in regional WA.

The maintenance funding will be allocated over the next three years and works across Mandurah will be prioritised on operational need – improving conditions for patients and staff.

Mandurah MLA David Templeman said the major maintenance blitz was about upgrading WA’s public health infrastructure to improve hospitals, health clinics, aged care sites and accommodation for patients and staff.

“By providing this significant investment we can ensure our health sites right across the State will receive upgrades for areas of priority maintenance which creates jobs and boosts the local economy,” he said.

Murray Wellington MLA Robyn Clarke said the funding was good news for patients.

“Ensuring our communities have health care options is vital,” she said.

“This ensures that our facilities can meet community expectations for healthcare.”
