Logan Hospital's new modular ward craned in over five nights

Logan Hospital’s new $20 million modular ‘Ward 2Q’ has been spectacularly craned into place over five nights this month as part of a rapid expansion project to deliver more beds.

The new 28-bed ward was manufactured off site, delivered to the hospital on 36 semi-trailers, and will now be fitted out with plumbing, medical gases, clinical lighting, digital connectivity, beds and equipment.

Once commissioning work is complete, it will open in the second half of 2023 with 53 new full-time employees including doctors, nurses, health professionals and support staff.

The ward is just one part of the Queensland Government’s record $1 billion-plus investment in Logan Hospital, and will help manage the current demand ahead of the remainder of the 318 additional beds coming online over the coming years.

Ward 2Q will focus on providing care for patients who need to stay in hospital a little longer due to complex medical or social needs – freeing up the existing acute medical beds.

The building includes a patient lounge, an outdoor garden and, on the second floor, office space for support services.

Prior to its delivery on the hospital site, the ward was manufactured locally at Hutchinson Builders’ modular building facility at Ormeau, supporting an estimated 95 construction jobs.
