The multimillion-dollar redevelopment of Bunbury Regional Hospital has reached another milestone, with the State Government calling for expressions of interest for managing contractors to design and construct the major project.

The $277.9 million redevelopment, which will include additional beds, an expanded emergency department, new maternity, birthing and neonatal services, and WA’s first regional teaching, training and research centre, is set to provide an investment in both new and refurbished infrastructure to service the growing South West population, along with regular influxes of tourists.

Health Minister Amber-Jade Sanderson said Bunbury Regional Hospital was one of the busiest sites in regional WA and had a long tradition of providing high-quality care to the community and region.

“This transformation of Bunbury Regional Hospital will deliver a modern, fit-for-purpose facility that will expand services for the entire South West region and meet growing demand for years to come,” she said.

It comes after Ms Sanderson was in Bunbury in December to announce the expanded upgrades, at the same time launching a new rural psychiatry training program — the first of its kind in Australia.

Early works at the hospital, including a new carpark, were completed last year.

The expression of interest is available on Tenders WA, with applications set to close on March 16.
