Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

What is the Logan Hospital Expansion?

The Logan Hospital Expansion is a suite of major construction projects to be delivered over the coming years at the hospital.

The program of works will enhance our clinical services and improve facilities for the Logan community in one of the fastest growing regions in the state.

It will increase healthcare services available in Logan, which means the local community can be treated nearer to their home.

What's included in the expansion?

The expansion program has already completed:

These three projects have helped us increase the capacity of the hospital quickly to help meet the increasing needs of the community in one of fastest growing regions in the state.

Looking further ahead, the expansion will deliver:

  • a vertical expansion of the existing hospital buildings, with a range of new wards and services
  • an additional 206 beds and treatment spaces
  • refurbished clinical and support services in existing areas of the hospital
  • a refurbished and expanded Logan Maternity service
  • a new 28-bed medical ward.

Why are we expanding Logan Hospital?

Logan is one of Queensland’s largest growth corridors, which means the demand for health care services continues to grow.

More than 70,000 people are expected to move to the area within the next decade. This is an annual growth rate of 2.2 per cent, compared to the Queensland rate of 1.7 per cent.

Over the next 15 years, Logan Hospital is predicted to see a 110 per cent increase in admissions, and a 52 per cent increase in emergency department presentations.

The Logan Hospital Expansion will increase the capacity of the hospital, to meet this future demand for healthcare services and provide more services for our community, closer to home.

When will construction start?

We commenced construction on the Logan Maternity refurbishment and the major expansion project in 2021. 

Works has also commenced on a new 28-bed medical ward.

Construction works will continue through to the end of 2024.

We have already completed the first three milestones of our program, including:

When will construction be complete?

Construction work at the hospital will continue through to 2024. However, services will be progressively coming online between 2023 and 2024.

How can I apply for a job?

Approximately 1500 additional full-time equivalent staff will be required as new and expanded services come online. There will be opportunities for nursing, medical, allied health and support staff.

How did you determine which services to expand?

Careful and considered planning is required for any new public infrastructure investment.

Metro South Health, in partnership with Building Queensland, completed a detailed business case for the expansion which included:

  • a detailed analysis of clinical service demands and population projections
  • feedback from staff and stakeholders
  • input from building design, engineering and clinical experts.

This work ensures we have a robust and deliverable plan that meets the needs of the community now and into the future.
