Welcome to new WHA members

We would like to welcome Mackay Hospital and Health Service (MHHS)  to the WHA community.

Mackay Hospital is currently undertaking a $408 million dollar redevelopment. It is well underway and the expected completion date for this is soon.

Mackay Hospital & Health Service comprises: Mackay Base Hospital, Proserpine Hospital, Sarina Hospital, Dysart Hospital, Clermont Hospital & Moranbah Hospital.

Proserpine Hospital has launched a Midwifery Group Practice (MGP) to provide Whitsunday with continuity of care. The MGP enables women to be cared for by the same midwife or a small group of known midwives. This free maternity model of care service empowers women to take ownership of their pregnancy, birth and parenting in a supportive environment.
