New wing adds to growing precinct

MLA Matt Taylor, CEO Group St John of God Health Care Dr Michael Stanford and CEO St John of God Murdoch Hospital John Fogarty. Health professionals, dignitaries and staff gathered for the official blessing of St John of God Murdoch Hospital’s new wing to celebrate its addition to the growing Murdoch Health Precinct.

On the evening, the new South Wing, with its striking green windows, provided a perfect backdrop to the blessing given by the Most Reverend Donald Sproxton DD and a Welcome to Country by Reverend Sealin Garlett.

In attendance were hospital CEO John Fogarty, CEO St John of God Health Care Dr Michael Stanford, Chair of Murdoch Medical Advisory Committee Dr Peter Bremner, doctors and staff who all spoke of the significant impact the new wing and theatre expansion will have on health services in the precinct.

“The addition of the South Wing in our twentieth year marks an important occasion in our hospital’s history and brings to a conclusion stage 1 of our redevelopment project,” said Mr Fogarty.

“We can now say our capacity is more than double what it was when we first opened our doors.”

“As we reflect on 20 years of service to this community we look forward to a bright future as part of WA’s largest health precinct.”

Brookfield Multiplex Regional Managing Director Chris Palandri said construction of the new South Wing and theatre expansion was completed two months ahead of schedule and follows their successful delivery earlier this year of the hospital’s new Wexford Medical Centre.

South Wing 119“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 the $430 million St John of God Midland Public and Private Hospitals,” said Mr Palandri.
