The contract is worth about AU$730 million and will commence in August 2021 after the completion of the first 10-year term of the contract.
Serco and the Government of Western Australia agreed that three of the service lines delivered by Serco would be taken over by the state from August 2021. Serco’s financial scale of the contract will be reduced from that point on.
Rupert Soames, Group Chief Executive Officer of Serco Group, said: “Fiona Stanley Hospital is an outstanding facility delivering a world-class service. I am very proud of the work we have done to initially stand up a greenfield site into the state's leading public health facility and then to support clinical services over the hospital's first seven years.”
Serco said it would continue to deliver 21 service lines, including facilities and asset management, electronic records management and ICT management.
“We are pleased the State has recognised the importance of Serco's ongoing support with this contract extension for the next stage of the hospital's development, and we will continue to work incredibly hard to deliver our services and ensure the transition is efficiently delivered”, said Soames.
