Logan Hospital car park

Metro South Health is making plans to construct a short-term car park to provide convenient, local parking for Logan Hospital staff.

Currently, staff park in several areas both on and off-site. As the demand for Logan Hospital services has grown, accessing available car parking has become increasingly difficult and time consuming, particularly for day shift staff.

A partnership agreement has been reached between Metro South Health, The Department of Education and Training and TAFE Queensland, which includes the construction of a car park on TAFE land adjacent to the hospital.

$5 million has been allocated from the Queensland Government to deliver the car park project. This project is the first part of the greater plan for Meadowbrook to fulfil its potential as a health and wellbeing precinct, supported by well-planned infrastructure and services.

Meadowbrook planning also explores the opportunity for Logan Hospital to evolve into a ‘teaching hospital’ where TAFE and University functions coalesce on the hospital site to support this initiative.

This project, including proposed initiatives in the Meadowbrook Master Plan, caters for the predicted growth of the region, and will have significant long-term benefits for the community.
