Beverley and Quairading health service redevelopments complete

 

  • Official opening of redevelopments to Beverley and Quairading health services
  • Works form part of the biggest capital works program ever completed by the WA Country Health Service

 

The redevelopment of the Beverley and Quairading health services have been officially opened by Agricultural Region MLC Laurie Graham, representing the Minister for Health.

 

The renovations are part of a $300 million capital works program that is improving infrastructure in 37 towns across the Wheatbelt, Great Southern, Mid-West and South-West regions.

 

The $5.4 million upgrade to the Beverley Health Service includes the construction of three new consultation rooms for allied health staff, who previously operated off-site, and a resuscitation and treatment room. Improvements have also been made to the kitchen, the entrance and car park along with improved ambulance access.

 

The $3.2 million upgrade to the Quairading Health Service includes the refurbishment of the kitchen, the medical records room and creation of a new multipurpose consultation room. The new emergency suite features resuscitation and treatment bays, a triage room and pathology area.

 

Both projects also received extensive upgrades to electrical and mechanical services together with improved hydraulic works.

 

The ICT improvements at both sites mean telehealth services have been expanded with cancer care, stroke care, emergency telehealth and many allied health services all available. WiFi is now also accessible throughout both facilities.

 

In the Wheatbelt, the WA Country Health Service’s capital works program also includes the redevelopment of Merredin, Narrogin and Northam hospitals as well as upgrades to 23 small hospitals and health centres.

 

These infrastructure projects are part of a modernization program supported by Royalties for Regions and taking place across the WA Country Health Service.
