construction complete on onslow health service redevelopment
That’s why the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project proudly contributed $22 million to the construction of Onslow's brand-new hospital and health service.
Construction of the redeveloped facility is now complete, with the doors expected to open to the community in December. On Saturday 1 December the Onslow community had an opportunity to tour the new facilities before it officially opens to the public.
Chevron Australia Operations Manager for Policy Government and Public Affairs Melissa Smith said the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project contributed funding to the redevelopment as part of its $250 million commitment to upgrading Onslow's social and critical infrastructure.

The new Onslow Health Service facility includes an expanded emergency department with three acute care bays and one state-of-the-art resuscitation bay; a six-bed inpatient unit with modern, single rooms each with an ensuite; a purpose-built medical imaging room and a new dental clinic.
The modern outpatient centre includes purpose-built rooms for child health, community mental health, physiotherapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy and community health nursing.
The high-tech ICT and communications technology will enable telehealth links so that patients have access to a wide range of specialists across the region and in Perth.
The building's distinctive curved roof design reflects the colours and landscape of the Pilbara, with a wide balcony with views out to Beadon Bay. The new building also includes artwork collaborations created by Onslow residents, coordinated by artist Simon Gilby.
