The Southern Inland Health Initiative’s $300 million capital works program includes around $40 million to redevelop and reform three small hospitals in Cunderdin, Pingelly and Mullewa to create new fit-for-purpose health centres and to refurbish the Dongara Health Service into a contemporary primary care centre.

The innovative health centres at Pingelly and Cunderdin are a first for the Wheatbelt.  The centres will replace small hospitals offering limited in-patient care, and will focus on providing more primary health initiatives that keep people well, in the community and out of hospital through:

  • promotion of good health
  • prevention and early detection of illness
  • management of chronic disease.

The new health centres are being developed in consultation with the local communities at Cunderdin and Pingelly, and will give the community access to a range of health services and providers under one roof.

In addition to enhanced primary and community care facilities the health centres will continue to provide 24/7 emergency care from an upgraded emergency department. 

To complement the new health centres in Cunderdin and Pingelly, suitable age-appropriate accommodation has been built alongside, providing an innovative solution to contemporary age-care needs.

Construction of Pingelly Health Centre was officially opened in November 2018. 

Construction of Cunderdin Health Centre was completed in January 2019.

The new Pingelly & Cunderdin Health Centres will include:

  • contemporary emergency departments
  • Emergency Telehealth Service videoconferencing facilities
  • general practice consultation rooms and treatment spaces.
  • group therapy rooms
  • four multi-purpose consult rooms enabled with telehealth
  • ambulance bays
