Final plans and architectural designs for the redevelopment of Merredin Health Service have been unveiled to the public today.
Minister for Health, Kim Hames, said the new emergency department and outpatient building would blend in with the original 1970s hospital structure.
"The new amenities are sympathetic to the existing buildings which vary in age and architectural styles, but now they have a level of design cohesion and identity as one facility," Hames said.
"The existing red and cream colours of the buildings have been kept, but a bright yellow has been added as an accent colour, reflecting the colour of the wattle flowers around Merredin and the Wheatbelt."
The redeveloped Merredin Health Service will provide a new state-of-the-art emergency department, as well as upgrades to the major areas within the hospital.
Peter Hunt Architects has been contracted to head the redevelopment, with renovations inside and outside the building.
Minister for Regional Development, Terry Redman, said the Southern Inland Health Initiative was providing regional residents with quality health care.
"Providing quality and contemporary infrastructure and amenities is essential to a viable health care service model," Redman said.
"Royalties for Regions is bringing modern and best practice health care services to regional Western Australia and I look forward to the Merredin Health Service redevelopment being completed."
Construction is expected to begin mid-2016.
