The construction of the St John of God Murdoch Wexford Medical Centre is now complete, with most medical suites already sold or leased, ready to support the provision of outstanding health care for the local community.

Murdoch Hospital Chief Executive Officer John Fogarty said the Centre will help usher in a new era of health care delivery for Perth’s largest health precinct.

“The new centre will have a profound impact on the services our hospital provides,” said Mr Fogarty.

“It has seventy consulting suites that will enable our specialists to provide a wide range of medical specialty services, including orthopaedics, cardiology, obstetrics and urology, and almost double the consulting suite space on the Murdoch campus.”

Construction on the Medical Centre began in September 2012. The newly completed seven floor medical centre also features radiology, pathology, a cafe and retail space.

Brookfield Multiplex Regional Managing Director Chris Palandri said construction of the Wexford Medical Centre was completed three weeks ahead of schedule.

“The successful delivery of this wonderful new facility is a great endorsement of the depth of our capability in the health sector,” said Mr Palandri.

“We are delighted to have a valued long-term partnership with St John of God Health Care, delivering new health facilities both here in Murdoch and in Midland, but also the construction of Murdoch hospital in 1994.”

In March, the completion of the Centre was made official with a blessing by the Most Reverend Archbishop Timothy Costelloe, Archbishop of Perth, and a smoking ceremony and Welcome to Country performed by the Reverend Sealin Garlett.

The new Centre is adjacent to Fiona Stanley Hospital, public transport on Barry Marshall Parade, the existing Murdoch Medical Clinic and St John of God Murdoch Hospital’s main building.
