“The construction of the new health care facility will ensure the Australian Defence Force is able to provide quality health services for its personnel,” Minister Price said. 

“The facility will include primary care including mental health and rehabilitation, inpatient unit, pharmacy, physiotherapy, dental, general support, external works, airfield response and deployable health accommodation for No. 1 Expeditionary Health Squadron.”

Thompson said the government’s defence procurement policies are supporting local businesses in achieving a greater share of Defence work.
