- 2022-23 McGowan State Budget delivers $5.9 million to commence the Byford Health Hub project
- Project will bring together a mix of health and social services under the one roof
- McGowan Government delivering on $30.6 million election commitment
This year's State Budget will commit $5.9 million to commence work on the Byford Health Hub, to provide a vital health asset to a growing region.
The integrated health hub will be located in the Byford Town Centre and will operate as a satellite service under the Armadale Health Service.
The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale has experienced the fastest population growth rate in Western Australia over the past decade and as this growth is expected to continue the health needs of the region are also increasing.
The new facility will provide a mix of health assets to the region and include health services such as medical clinics, allied health and GPs, mental health services, nurse practitioners, community midwives and treatment rooms.
The State Budget funding will start the development of forward works on the $30.6 million Byford Health Hub project. These works will include utility connections and site preparations.
Comments attributed to Health Minister Amber-Jade Sanderson:
"The McGowan Government recognises the benefits of a health model which brings together a mix of health and social health services under the one roof.
"This is an opportunity to shape a shared model of care which can positively impact the health and wellbeing of the community, and I welcome the commitment in this year's State Budget."
