Building firms ADCO Constructions and Pindan have secured a pair of contracts collectively worth around $24 million, with ADCO to expand Osborne Park Hospital and Pindan to build a new community centre in Kalamunda.

The Osborne Park expansion, announced last year, will comprise a new neonatal nursery, fit-for-purpose maternity assessment unit and 16-bed rehabilitation unit.

The new nursery unit will reduce the number of babies requiring specialist care to be transferred to King Edward Memorial Hospital or the Perth Children's Hospital, enabling mothers and their babies to remain together.

The new rehabilitation unit, for patients aged 65 years and over, will comprise six existing stroke beds and 10 additional new beds.

The contract was valued at $17.2 million.

Balcatta MLA David Michael said in July last year around 1,500 patients were receiving rehab treatment and care at the Osborne Park Hospital.

“It’s vital for people in our northern suburbs to continue to have these specialised health services in their area and it’s even better that the spaces will be far bigger and far more contemporary,” he said.

The $24.9 million expansion is jointly funded by the state and federal governments, with Western Australia contributing $14.3 million.

ADCO beat three tenderers for the works, which are due to complete by September 2021.

Meanwhile, Premier Mark McGowan was on hand today for the start of work at a $6.6 milion Kalamunda Community Centre.

Pindan has been tasked with carrying out construction work at the facility, located at Jorgensen Park.

General manager Simon Greenlaw said the scope of works would comprise demolition of the current pavilion and construction of a new building containing two halls, art studios and craft rooms, a kitchen, office space, childcare facilities and outdoor play areas.

“This is a very important community project that will breathe new life into the area and benefit locals so we’re incredibly proud to play a key part in delivering it to residents,” Mr Greenlaw said.

The community centre was designed by Bollig Design Group and funded by a combination of federal and state government funds.

The federal government has contributed $1 million, Lotterywest $2.5 million and the state government has pitched in $3 million.

Construction is expected to be complete by March 2021.
