The 307 bed Midland Public Hospital at the new Midland Health Campus will deliver free care to the people of Perth’s north-eastern corridor and the Wheatbelt from late 2015. It will be the first new hospital in the area in more than 50 years and construction is now underway.
When opened in 2015, the new hospital’s state-of-the-art facilities will deliver new and expanded services free of charge to public patients with 50 per cent more beds than the existing Swan District Hospital. This will enable many more local people to access healthcare closer to home.
The new facility – jointly funded by the State and Commonwealth Governments – will replace the existing Swan District Hospital and will be designed, built, operated and maintained by St John of God Health Care through a public-private partnership (PPP). This is the same model which has been successfully treating public patients at the Joondalup Health Campus since 1996.
St John of God Health Care will also build a 60-bed private hospital with an additional three operating theatres and some shared services on the site.
