Access to Merredin Health Service changes as redevelopment progresses

The new entrance and reception to the Merredin Health Service will open to visitors and patients at 8.00am on Tuesday 19 March.

All visitors to the health service and clients attending ambulatory care, pathology, medical imaging and x-ray appointments will need to enter the hospital via the new entrance.

Access to the Emergency Department has not changed.

WA Country Health Service Regional Director Sean Conlan, said the new entrance and reception area have been set into the original hospital footprint, in order to preserve the heritage façade.

“The completed refurbishment of the Health Service promises a new era in health care with a focus on promoting good health, preventing illness and the management of chronic disease.

“The upgraded Health Service will give the local community improved primary health and community care facilities all on one site,” said Mr Conlan.

The entrance to Merredin Health Service is on Kitchener Road, Merredin and all phone numbers, faxes and email addresses of the Hospital and staff remain the same.

Reception hours are 8am to 4.30pm weekdays.

For After Hours and emergency access please go to the Emergency entrance. Phone: 9081 3222. Fax: 9081 3341
