Our family is growing.

We're planning an $18.875 million refurbishment and expansion project to deliver a bigger, better Logan Maternity for our community.

The project will expand our maternity inpatient unit, birthing suites and special care nursery, to provide contemporary maternity care for our local community, close to home.

What we're planning

Refurbished maternity unit with 36 beds
Refurbished maternity unit with 6 additional beds
Refurbished birthing unit with 14 birth suites, eight with birthing pools
Refurbished birthing unit with 5 additional suites
Refurbished special care nursery
Refurbished and expanded special care nursery
Dedicated facilities for partners, families and visitors

What's happening now?

We are currently completing the 'detailed design' for the project. This is one of the key stages in planning a building project.

While we've already completed lots of planning, this stage goes into much more detail. It looks at specific room layouts as well as the materials that will be used, in consultation with our staff and families.

At the end of the process we will have a full architectural drawing that will be used by the managing contractor to build the new facilities.

Benefits

We understand that the journey to parenthood is one of the most important events in your life. That's why the expanded Logan Maternity will offer:

  • facilities that support leading models of care
  • greater birthing choice
  • improved privacy
  • improved access
  • birthing pools for water immersion
  • dedicated facilities for families, partners and carers.
