Healthy fund­ing for med­i­cal com­plex

Pinjarra Murray Times - - NEWS -

A CHEQUE for $1.87 mil­lion from Lot­teryWest brings fund­ing for the Peel Youth Med­i­cal Ser­vices com­plex to al­most $10 mil­lion.

The fund­ing will kick­start con­struc­tion on the one-stop shop, which will be built on a 3ha site on All­nut Street.

Man­durah MLA David Tem­ple­man said the fund­ing was im­por­tant and sym­bolic.

“This is a great ex­am­ple of three lev­els of gov­ern­ment – Fed­eral, State and lo­cal – work­ing to­gether,’’ he said.

“We are very for­tu­nate to have Lot­teryWest which, un­like sim­i­lar or­gan­i­sa­tions in other states, re­turns ev­ery­thing to the com­mu­nity.”

Mr Tem­ple­man also paid trib­ute to City Coun­cil­lor Dave Schu­macher, who he said was pas­sion­ate about men­tal health and the fa­cil­ity.

The first sod is ex­pected to be turned in Oc­to­ber and the com­plex in op­er­a­tion by early 2019.
