Local touch for campus
More than three-quarters of the Karratha Health Campus workforce have been local, according to WA Country Health Service chief executive Jeff Moffet.
Mr Moffet said the project was having a positive impact on Pilbara businesses, with 76 per cent of the workforce sourced locally.
“It’s exciting to see the building taking shape and I look forward to seeing how the finished building will positively affect the community,” he said.
“Between August and March 2017 69,614 man-hours have been worked, with approximately 95 construction workers now on site.”
Mr Moffet said the $207.15 million campus would have an expanded emergency department, surgical centre, delivery suites and maternity wing, telehealth services, expanded outpatients and services such as child health and medical imaging.
