Temporary measures in place for parking as Northam Health Service redevelopment continues

The Northam Health Service redevelopment is progressing with completion of the new chemotherapy and staff training areas expected in the next three months.

The redevelopment includes installation of a canopy over the entrance to the hospital and upgrade of the front car parks at the Health Service, including new drainage and lighting works.

WA Country Health Service Wheatbelt Regional Director Sean Conlan said the car park works are expected to be completed in six to eight weeks.

“We are aware of the pressures around current car parking availability and we understand the stress this can cause for some visitors and clients,” he said. 

Mr Conlan said the Northam Health Service had negotiated additional car parking at the front of the Northam Bowling Club to help ease this pressure and had also increased the number of disabled car park bays until the new car park is completed.

“We appreciate everyone’s patience while these critical works are completed.

“I can assure you, the wait will be worth it once the project is complete with newly landscaped areas including direct pathways to each area of the Health Service,” said Mr Conlan.
