Caboolture Hospital redevelopment caters for regional growth
By 2031, the population of Caboolture and surrounds is expected to grow by 51 per cent, and the Queensland Government has committed $352.9 million to deliver 130 new beds to significantly expand services.
Subsequently, over the next four years, Caboolture Hospital will undergo a significant expansion and redevelopment.
The Caboolture Hospital redevelopment will include the construction of a five storey clinical services building and a targeted refurbishment of existing spaces.
A larger hospital requires more car parking and $41.7 million has been provided to deliver a new multi-story carpark.
The design of the new clinical services building is expected to be completed in mid-2020 with the construction phase then expected to start and take up to three years to complete.
The Caboolture Hospital redevelopment is a complex mix of new build and a refurbishment of the existing facility and covers a total gross floor area of approximately 32,000 square metres and will include:
- new and expanded emergency department
- 20 bed rehabilitation unit
- 10 bed palliative care unit
- 14 bed geriatric evaluation and management unit
- 32 bed medical ward
- 10 bed intensive care unit
- eight bed cardiac care unit
- two additional operating theatres and four stage one recovery spaces
- four bed chest pain assessment unit and 16 bed medical ward
- targeted refurbishment within existing hospital
- enhanced and expanded special care nursery with 15 bays.
Construction is due to be complete in 2023. For more information visit https://metronorth.health.qld.gov.au/caboolture/caboolture-hospital-redevelopment.
