We're bringing healthcare services closer to home. Opening mid 2024.

    We're building a new satellite hospital in Eight Mile Plains. It will offer a range of healthcare services for the local community including:

    • minor injury and illness clinic
    • kidney dialysis
    • cancer day therapy
    • outpatient services
    • allied health services such as physiotherapy and occupational therapy
    • mental health services.

    What we’re building

    The Eight Mile Plains Satellite Hospital is one of seven new facilities the Queensland Government is building as part of a $265 million investment.

    More than 25,000 additional residents will call Brisbane's southern suburbs home in the next 10 years. The Eight Mile Plains Satellite Hospital is designed to help meet the healthcare needs of this growing community.

    It's being built at 59 Levington Rd, Eight Mile Plains. The site was chosen to provide easy access to healthcare for the local community, in a convenient setting, without having to travel to a major hospital for care. Free onsite parking will be available.

    Building started in late 2022.The satellite hospital will open in mid 2024.
