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:

  • two new 28-bed medical wards
  • a mental health lounge within the Emergency Department
  • a new multi-level car park for patients, visitors and staff.

These 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 stage 1 expansion including:
    • 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 stage 2 expansion, including:
    • a new clinical services building
    • an additional 112 beds
    • new operating theatres
  • a refurbished and expanded Logan Maternity service.

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 100,000 people are expected to move to the area within the next 15 years.

Over the same period, 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 stage 1 expansion project in 2021. Construction on the stage 2 expansion project will start in 2024.

Construction works will continue through to 2027.

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

  • two new 28-bed medical wards
  • mental health lounge
  • multi-level car park.

When will construction be complete?

Construction work at the hospital will continue through to 2027. However, services will be progressively coming online starting in 2023.

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.

More information and job openings can be found on our recruitment campaign website

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 the Department of Health, completed business cases for each of the expansion projects which included:

  • detailed analyses 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.
