Consumer and community partnering

The Logan Hospital Expansion recognises that partnering with consumers and the community is essential to building healthcare services that meet the needs of our patients, carers and visitors.

Consumers (people who have experience using our services) and the broader Logan community have been participating in meetings and consultations since the early planning phase of the expansion program.

Their input and ongoing involvement is invaluable as we transition into the detailed design and construction phase.

Co-designing our new and expanded services with consumers and community members ensures they are welcoming, safe and culturally appropriate—in line with Metro South Health’s commitment to person-centred care.

What we've done

Consumers and community members have been involved in a broad range of planning and design activities for the Logan Hospital Expansion.

Consumers and community members participated in:

  • design user groups—co-designing clinical and public spaces with architects and clinicians
  • consultations about wayfinding strategy, interior design and public realm (public spaces across the hospital environment)
  • consultations about appropriate cultural inclusions for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • the Logan Maternity Advisory Group
  • the Arts, Culture and Environment Reference Group.

We have also consulted more broadly with the local community on aspects of the expansion including:

  • the hospital site’s infrastructure designation (building approval)
  • the design of the multi-level car park façade
  • training and work experience opportunities for local school students
  • appropriate cultural inclusions for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples through local Traditional Owners and Elders.
