Health alert: Novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

We are experiencing an increased number of people presenting to our Emergency Departments for treatment of COVID-19. A number of our staff are also impacted by COVID-19, and as a result we are experiencing longer-than-usual emergency department waiting times. Metro South Health will continue to treat the most urgent cases first (Category 1). Please do not attend the emergency department unless it is an emergency. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we prioritise our most urgent cases.

Fully vaccinated visitors may attend our facilities. Please refer to the visitor restrictions for more information.

Redland Hospital Expansion

Stage 1

Planning is underway for a $62 million Stage 1 expansion of Redland Hospital which includes a new Intensive Care Unit, a 32-bed ward and the refurbishment of a number of existing areas in the hospital. 

Stage 1 is jointly funded by the Queensland Government ($32 million) and the Australian Government ($30 million).

Stage 2

A $6 million detailed business case is about to commence to deliver detailed planning for a major expansion of Redland Hospital. The proposed Stage 2 expansion would boost the capacity and capability of the hospital and increase its self-sufficiency to provide access to more healthcare services closer to home for the community. 

The detailed business case involves a significant amount of work, including a detailed analysis of service and population demands, and projections to ensure a robust and deliverable plan. A range of experts will be engaged to work with clinicians and stakeholders to design the facilities, including health service planning experts, architects, engineers, quantity surveyors, and economists.
