Since its opening in 1997, the Peel Health Campus has remained largely unchanged.
But over the past 20 years, our region has more than doubled.
That's why I've fought alongside the Mandurah community over the last year to upgrade the hospital.
After months of petitions, letters, meetings, yard signs and a rally, our community had a huge win.
The Morrison Government committed $25 million to upgrade the Peel Health Campus. That money will be used to:
- Expand the Emergency Department
- Improve the Imaging Department
- Build a new Community Mental Health Facility
- Establish a new program to fight eating disorders
This is just some of the work we are doing for support health services in Mandurah and the Peel region. We have also delivered:
- 2 new Residential Aged Care facilities to be built in Halls Head and Dawesville (264 new beds, $17 million annually)
- A new headspace established in Mandurah
- A new urgent medical care centre to be run by St John’s, to relieve pressure on the ED (sharing in $28 million for 4 new centres in WA)
- Funding and support for the Peel Health Hub, which was opened late last year ($2 million)
- Full bulk billing for MRIs at SKG radiology in Mandurah, saving locals hundreds to access the service
But there is still much to do. WA Labor must come to the table with a serious long-term plan for the Peel Health Campus and for the health of our region. As a state government, that's their job.
