Murdoch Community Hospice
Located on the grounds of St John of God Murdoch Hospital, the purpose-built, 20-bed Murdoch Community Hospice provides specialist palliative care to patients in Perth’s southern suburbs. Funding for the $5m Murdoch Community Hospice was raised by the St John of God Foundation.
In 2012, the hospital began construction on a $200+ million redevelopment project, which includes an additional 174 beds, eight new theatres, a cancer centre including 20-place chemotherapy unit, multi-storey medical centre, 30-place endoscopy unit, pathology laboratory, birthing suite and 450 new parking bays. This will include a new hospital wing, an extra 120 beds, eight additional operating theatres, and a new cancer centre. The expansion will provide services for an extra 25,000 patients each year, with new services becoming available between late 2012 and late 2014.
The new St John of God Murdoch Training and Education Centre (MURTEC) opened in September 2012.
