Breaking ground on March 9 and full speed ahead with construction will see the SQRH Charleville training facility on the Charleville Hospital grounds completed by the end of September.
The McNab Constructions team have worked hard to secure a majority of local contractors, ensuring community safety during the COVID-19 pandemic and liaising with Charleville Hospital staff around changes on site.
In May the roof was completed and throughout June and July internal works are progressing with fit out and equipment installation.
During June Murweh Shire Council Mayor Cr Shaun (Zoro) Radnedge and Charleville and Western Areas Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Health (CWAATISCH) CEO Sheryl Lawton toured the site and were impressed with the facility.
Charleville community members have been interested in the project and look forward to the state-of-the-art training facility helping prepare the emerging health workforce for rural practice in the South West.
The SQRH South West team look forward to moving into the building and supporting nursing, midwifery and allied health students from the new premises.
