The Queensland Government is investing $22.4 million in the QEII Hospital Expansion Program in addition to some local improvement projects (2021-2022).
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 QEII Hospital Expansion Program will be delivered as a series of projects.
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.
