King Edward Memorial Hospital, one of four Perth hospitals identified as having potentially flammable aluminium cladding during a state-wide audit, will get a further makeover after a cash injection of $15.1 million for renovations.

Work to replace the cladding at WA’s only tertiary maternity and gynaecological hospital started this month, with the federal-funded upgrades expected to start in coming years.

Upgrades include facade repairs, work on the hospital’s 13 lifts, structural reinforcement, and renewal of the fire detection and alarm systems, including power supply and back up provisions.
