South West Health Campus (Bunbury)
Since 2009 almost $27 million has been invested in the facilities at Bunbury’s South West Health Campus to help deliver better access to healthcare for people living in and around this growing regional centre.
Improvements include the establishment of the State’s first regional Intensive Care Unit. Opened in late 2012, this new facility provides specialist care for some of the region’s most critical patients, who would have previously been transferred to Perth.
In 2013, work to expand Bunbury’s busy emergency department (ED) was also completed, with capacity almost doubling in size, including a dedicated treatment and observation area for emergency cases. The former ED space has also been redeveloped into a special ‘fast track’ area, and a 10-bed short stay unit.
Cancer services have also been improved locally with the opening of the new South West Radiation Oncology Service Centre, a $10.4 million project.The centre is the first of its kind in regional WA and treats about 700 patients a year. A further $4.5 million is also being invested to improve breast cancer screening facilities in Bunbury.
