Locals have been given a glimpse inside the impressive Karratha Health Campus with the release of new high level floor plans and drone fly-over footage.

“Impressive drone footage provides a bird’s-eye view of the new Karratha Health Campus which is transforming the city’s skyline.” Minister for Health Roger Cook said.

“It’s exciting to see the facility taking shape and I look forward to seeing how the finished building will positively impact the local community.”

13,000 sqm, 40-bed facility, is being constructed on the corner of Balmoral and Warambie roads in Karratha’s town centre, and will replace the ageing Nickol Bay Hospital.

2D floor plans provide a first look at the general layout of services within the building, which uses spacious courtyards to balance artificial and natural light.

State-of-the-art campus will have a significantly expanded emergency department, a brand new surgical centre, new birthing suites and maternity wing, world-class telehealth services, new and expanded outpatients’ facilities and essential services such as child health and medical imaging, all under one roof.

Made possible by a $206.5 Million State Government investment and $650,000 from the resources sector through the Pilbara Health Initiative, Karratha Health Campus is on track for completion in 2018.
