Description /

The redevelopment of the Karratha Health Campus [KHC] is part of WA Country Health Service’s [WACHS] overall strategy to provide the West Pilbara region with a more effective service for both emergency and ambulatory health care, through the development of a new hospital and health facility in Karratha.

The project delivered a modern, purpose-built facility that was designed to facilitate patient-centered care which is underpinned by contemporary models of care.
