The $122.7 million upgrade of Geraldton Health Campus is a step closer after successfully progressing to the Request for Proposal (RFP) stage of the managing contractor procurement process.
Following evaluation of the Expressions of Interest (EOI), the project is moving forward with the RFP process to select the most suitable and capable partner to deliver the multi-million dollar revamp of Geraldton Health Campus.
The redeveloped Geraldton Health Campus will transform the current hospital into a modern, accessible facility that includes an expanded emergency department and intensive care unit and integrated mental health service.
