What we're planning

Through the QEII Hospital Expansion Project, the hospital will be transformed with a series of projects designed to enhance our clinical services and improve facilities for patients, visitors and staff.

The Queensland Government is investing $465M deliver a range of service increases at QEII Hospital including growth of 112 overnight beds and will help meet the growing demand for health services on Brisbane’s southside.

Transforming our hospital

QEII Hospital is part of the most populated region in the state with more than 70,000 people expected to move to the broader catchment within the next decade.

The QEII Hospital Expansion Program will increase available beds with the expansion of Ward 5A to assist with demand in the growing region, allowing the local community to be treated closer to home.

Over the coming years, QEII Hospital will see the benefit of several other projects designed to increase services, improve functionality of existing facilities and make the environment more contemporary and comfortable for patients, visitors, and staff.

The projects

The QEII Hospital Expansion Program will be delivered as a series of projects.

  • New medical ward in 5A (26 beds)
  • Modular accommodation for administration
  • QEII Hospital Car Parking Plan
  • A collection of projects to increase size, space and contemporary comfort across the campus.

A traditional smoking Ceremony was held on 15 October 2021 to affirm the way forward for the QEII Hospital Expansion Program as the hospital campus heads towards a brighter future.
