Works are progressing well on the construction of a new 38-residential bedroom aged care facility on the existing Carnarvon Hospital Campus site in Carnarvon.  The 38 bed facility includes 2 respite bedrooms and 2 palliative care suites within the building.  The resident facilities include lounges, dining rooms, sitting alcoves, store room and shared activity and meeting rooms.  Staff and administrative facilities are also planned to be constructed - including offices, reception area, staff stations, store rooms, clean and dirty utility room and other necessary infrastructure for this size of facility.  The works incorporate the demolition of an existing facility and associated services which are connected to the existing hospital site facilities.  Throughout the works the existing hospital and part of the existing aged care facility will remain fully operational.
