The Southern Inland Health Initiative (SIHI) funded by the Royalties for Regions program includes the refurbishment of many small hospitals and health centres throughout the Wheatbelt region. The SIHI program is helping the country people with better, safer and more reliable health care. Upgrades introduced under SIHI are provided in addition to the existing services such as teleheath service that links West Australian patients and clinical staff via videoconferencing.
FIRM Construction successfully delivered the following projects under the SIHI:
- Mukinbudin Health Services
- Cunderdin Health Centre
- Moora Health Centre
- Kununoppin Hospital
- Wyalkatchem-Koorda Health Service
- Kellerberrin Memorial Health Service
This program is utilising modern technology to improve emergency medical care who live and work in the country. In addition to this, the program is increasing the range of local health services for the community by bringing care closer to home.
