The Redland Hospital Expansion will increase and expand healthcare services for the Redlands Coast community.
What we're planning
The Redland Hospital Expansion will deliver:
- a new Intensive Care Unit
- refurbishment of a number of existing areas in the hospital
- additional beds to increase hospital capacity.
The Redland Hospital Expansion (Stage 1) is jointly funded by the Queensland Government ($32 million) and the Australian Government ($30 million).
The Redland Hospital Expansion will increase bed capacity so that more patients can receive healthcare. This will help ease pressure on the emergency department and increase Redland Hospital’s capacity to care for patients who need to stay overnight, such as those needing surgery.
The new intensive care unit will mean that patients who require critical care and/or life support can be cared for at Redland Hospital. This means less patients will need to be transferred to other hospitals.
What's happening now
The contract has been awarded. Construction is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2023 and be completed in the first half of 2024.
Planning for the future
A $6 million detailed business case is underway to explore options to deliver new and expanded facilities to meet the healthcare needs of the community into the future.
The planning includes a detailed analysis of service and population demands, and projections to ensure a robust and deliverable plan for the future.
