Pilbara News - - News -

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.
