Increased health services for regional Western Australia
Regional Western Australia residents will benefit from increased health services in the region, with the final stage of the $56 million Kalgoorlie Health Campus redevelopment to be tendered in November.
The project may attract the interest of people looking at buying rural property near Kalgoorlie with the health campus receiving a major overhaul, including a new emergency department and special care unit.
West Australian premier Colin Barnett said the final phase of the project would involve the major refurbishment of parts of the building.
He commented: "When completed, the refurbished building will provide modern facilities for the outpatient specialist services, allied health and medical records.
"When phase three is completed, at the end of 2014, the people of Kalgoorlie-Boulder will have a modern health facility which will be of great benefit to them and future generations."
The first phase of the project, which opened in December 2010, comprised of a three bedroom palliative care facility.
With stage two of the redevelopment to be completed in September and phase three at the end of 2014, the increased health services in Kalgoorlie will be a key consideration for those buying land in the region.
