A Modern Palliative Care Addition, part of the phase one of the $55.8 Million upgrade of the Kalgoorlie Health Campus, was today officially opened by Health Minister Kim Hames.

Dr. Hames said the $2.7 Million addition included three ‘home style’ Purpose-Built Rooms for the exclusive use of Palliative Care Patients to provide greater patient comfort and privacy.

“This is a very important addition to the Kalgoorlie Health Campus and is of great benefit to Goldfields families needing palliative services.” Dr. Hames said.

“Each room has its own ensuite, private courtyard and fold-out sofa bed available for family, friends or carers to stay overnight with their loved ones.”

“A separate lounge room and a private meeting room are available for use by patients and their visitors, who have easy access to the new addition from nearby car parks.” Dr. Hames said.
