Harvey Health Service

The $13 million redevelopment of Harvey Health Service will provide local residents with state-of-the-art facilities combined with the latest advances in health care. The project was completed in May 2017.

Project overview

Harvey Health Service is enhancing the delivery of healthcare to the local community and improving working conditions for staff with the completion of a $13 million redevelopment.

With an 18-month build, and more than 54,000 hours worked, the project had a positive impact on local businesses and jobs, with a third of the workforce from the South-West region.

The redevelopment was completed in stages to minimise disruption to patients.

A new emergency department opened late last year, followed by completion of the new main entry, as well as improved community-based services, including outpatient facilities and new administration and reception.

The final stage involved refurbishment of the ward areas, with practical completion of all the building work now complete.

By combining state-of-the-art facilities with the latest advances in healthcare, the way patients receive care in regional and remote communities is being transformed.

The Harvey Health Service redevelopment was completed in May 2017 and officially opened by Health Minister Roger Cook MLA.

The entire Harvey Health Service redevelopment was completed in May 2017.

Improved services

Improved facilities for community-based services, including outpatient facilities, will bring care closer to home for the small South West coastal community.

Upgrades included:

  • Minor refurbishment of the inpatient ward
  • Refurbishment and co-location of ambulatory care services
  • Relocation and co-location of medical records
  • Relocation and refurbishment of pathology
  • Refurbishment of the main hospital entrance
  • Refurbishment of the body hold room to include a viewing room

Emergency Telehealth Service

Combining state-of-the-art facilities with the latest advances in healthcare is transforming the way patients receive care in regional and remote communities.

Technology plays a huge part in modern day healthcare and newly installed telehealth equipment in the hospital's ED is already improving access to emergency medical care in the Harvey community.

Local clinicians can now access emergency medicine specialists via high definition videoconferencing, to support them in the treatment of very acute emergency patients.
