Health alert: COVID-19

COVID-19 Alert: We are currently at GREEN traffic light level - there is no restriction for coming to hospital to receive healthcare. Visitors are currently welcome at Metro South Health facilities, and are asked to help keep patients safe by maintaining physical distancing where possible and practising hand hygiene. See visitor restrictions and the latest Queensland Government information. [18 January 2023].

The health system in the Metro South region – like many across the nation and the world – is facing greater demand and pressure than ever before. 

It’s important that our growing and ageing population continues to have access to quality healthcare services and facilities.

In line with the Queensland Hospitals and Health Plan, we’re committed to ensuring Metro South residents can access quality care, closer to home – which is why we’re planning for the future.

Below are just a few of our infrastructure projects currently underway or recently completed, to deliver better healthcare for you.
