Premier Visits Mersey Community Hospital
On Sunday, Fairbrother had the pleasure of welcoming Tasmanian Premier and Minister for Health, Jeremy Rockliff, to the Mersey Community Hospital. An opportunity for the Premier to view the progress being made on the $41 million project.
“The Mersey Community Hospital is a critical part of our community, and this redevelopment secures its future for years to come,” Premier Rockliff said. “The expansion means that we can meet the local community’s increasing and changing demand for health services.”
Construction on a live hospital site comes with its own set of unique challenges, but the Fairbrother team are working closely with the Department of Health and project consultants to ensure health services are not impacted.
At the centre of the expansion are a new outpatient facility and operating theatres, providing greater capacity for the North West Tasmanian community to receive the procedures they need. The Elective Surgery Day Centre is also being expanded, providing new consulting rooms, specialist treatments rooms, Paediatric rooms, as well as audiology and physiotherapy.
Construction is expected to be completed in late 2024.
