A ceremony to mark the official opening of Chittering Health Centre was held last Friday with the help of Senator Linda Reynolds and Moore MLA Shane Love.

The health facility has been operating for two months but last Friday marked its official opening.

It has been a 15-year vision for the Shire of Chittering, with the project delivered on time and on budget.

The centre is divided into two wings.

Jupiter Health and Medical Services provide general practitioner services in the northern wing, while the southern wing has been leased to WA Country Health Services to provide allied health services.

Funding from the Regional Development Australia Fund, the Country Local Government Fund and the Southern Inland Health Initiative assisted construction of the centre.
