The Western Australian Government has today announced the extension of the Serco Australia contract for non-clinical services at Fiona Stanley Hospital for six years, through to August 2027.
The extension includes 21 of the 24 facility management service lines that support the tertiary hospital. It will not include cleaning, catering or internal logistics services, which South Metropolitan Health Service will assume responsibility from August 2021.
Serco Asia Pacific CEO Mark Irwin said the extension reflected the ongoing importance of the partnership between the Serco’s FSH team and South Metropolitan Health Service.
“I am very proud of the work we have done to initially transition a greenfield site into the State’s leading public health facility,” Mr Irwin said. “This extension recognises the exceptional work of our team to initially stand up the hospital and ensure its strong operations since 2013.
“It also demonstrates the trust and confidence that Serco has established in delivering vital operational service lines such as ICT, estates, security, training, human resources, helpdesk, reception, waste management and linen.
“I am also pleased that in taking over the three services, the State will utilise our current workforce who have been an integral part of the hospital utilising our considerable training and experience. We have developed a strong track record in delivering these services to a world class standard, in terms of quality and efficiency, that should be maintained.”
“Our immediate focus remains on continuing to deliver high quality services for patients and visitors to the hospital while supporting the establishment of the COVID-19 Clinic at Fiona Stanley.”
