A contract to build a $61 million hospital development in Newman, Western Australia has been awarded to construction firm ADCO.
The first sod has already been turned on the project in WA’s East Pilbara region.
The new facility will include 12 in-patient beds, six emergency department bays, two dental chairs and GP consultation spaces, in addition to dedicated rooms for outpatient consults, therapy, medical imaging and pathology.
Other health services such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy and mental health will also be supported when the facility is complete in 2023.
The existing WA Country Health Service facility will remain operational throughout construction.
Work will be completed across three stages.
