The WA Government will invest $24.4 million as part of the WA Recovery Plan to provide an additional 20 mental health beds at Fremantle Hospital and supplement funding for the existing 20-bed expansion.
The new unit will include:
- 10-bed older adult neurological behavioural unit
- 10-bed adult ward, all single rooms with access to a courtyard.
This additional funding complements the 20-bed secure mental health unit at Fremantle Hospital announced in April 2019.
The 40-bed mental health development will transform Fremantle Hospital into a key mental health hub, significantly boosting the current 64-bed capacity and providing patients with better access to expert care.
