THE Western Australian government has awarded ADCO Constructions the contract to deliver the new $61.4 million Newman Health Service.
The redevelopment of the new facility includes 12 inpatient beds, six emergency department bays, two dental chairs and six GP consult spaces. There will also be dedicated rooms for outpatient consults, therapy, medical imaging and pathology. Other health services such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, counselling, community health nursing and mental health will also be housed in the new building.
Premier Mark McGowan said the redevelopment of the Newman Health Service will provide considerable opportunities to local businesses during the program of works, providing a boost to the local economy.
