Conservation and environment
In November 2010, the Fiona Stanley Hospital project was the winner of the WA Environment Awards 2010, in the Government Leading by Example category.
WA Health is committed to making sure that Fiona Stanley Hospital has the best possible environmental outcomes.
WA Health is investing more than $5 million in on-site conservation programs and environmental initiatives at Fiona Stanley Hospital and a further $2.3 million in off-site conservation programs.
Work includes fauna relocation, flora and seed collection, top soil removal and reuse, and the preservation of natural bushland on the site.
Off-site programs include the rehabilitation of regional park lands, the purchase and protection of native bushland, investment into community-based conservation programs and funding for Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo research.
Fiona Stanley Hospital will also set a new standard for ‘green’ heath care design in Western Australia. The design and operation of the facility will reduce energy consumption, greenhouse emissions and water use.
