$8.1m Exmouth Health Service Officially Opened

Residents and visitors to Exmouth Health Service now have access to improved facilities following an $8.1 million upgrade made possible by the Liberal National Government's Royalties for Regions Gascoyne Revitalisation Plan.

The modern, refurbished facility was officially opened yesterday by Health Minister John Day. 

Mr Day said the refurbishment created a modern, purpose-built health care hub which would meet the changing needs of the community for many years. 

"The new facility has been designed to provide high quality, contemporary health services to Exmouth and surrounding communities and will give residents peace of mind with better access to emergency and primary health care."

"It brings child health services, community mental health and social work together with the emergency department in a single health care hub." 

Mr Redman said he was pleased that Royalties for Regions investment was making a significant contribution to the sustainability and efficiency of service delivery for the community. 

"Royalties for Regions has invested $150 million over six years to revitalise the region through the Gascoyne Revitalisation Plan," he said. 

"The Exmouth Health Service redevelopment is another example of how Royalties for Regions is enhancing the delivery of sustainable services that meet the current and future healthcare demands of our regional communities." 

The refurbished facility has new treatment areas, medical imaging equipment, consulting rooms and telehealth facilities, as well as a purpose-built two-chair dental facility. 

"Investment in the relevant health infrastructure is vital to the region and as a Government we are fulfilling an election commitment to deliver health care more locally, giving communities greater options for treatment in their own towns," Mr Day said.
