St John of God Health Care has announced it will build Western Australia’s first ever regional coronary care unit.
Each year, close to 3000 of the state’s South West residents are hospitalised in Perth for acute cardiac conditions, or have to travel to Perth to undergo cardiac angiography.
The new coronary care unit facility to be built at St John of God Hospital in Bunbury will enable public and private patients to access quality care within the South West, nearer to families and support networks.
The state of the art six-bed CCU is co-funded by the state’s Royalties for Regions program and the WA-based, not-for-profit St John of God Health Care. The CCU will be complemented by a state of the art cardiac angiography suite.
Both facilities are expected to open by October 2012.Do you have an idea for a story?
