Construction is progressing well for Stage 2 of the Southern Queensland Centre of Excellence (SQCoE) and the proposed completion date is end of 2017.
Stage 2 will be a 1655m2 facility that physically links from Stage 1 on adjoining land. It will pursue the highest quality of care for the community by maintaining and sustaining the service model that facilitates innovation, teamwork, education and research.
Stage 2 will expand integrated clinical service delivery, research and training and offer an opportunity for improved work practices where possible. Further, it will include additional treatment and consultation spaces which will provide an opportunity to attract visiting specialists and health practitioners.
Medical and nursing students will have the opportunity to gain practical work experience at the facility through SQCoE's links with various universities.
The SQCoE provides a unique opportunity to reach an estimated 41,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons who live predominantly in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Logan Ipswich and Moreton Bay.
The purpose of the facility is to respond to the health needs and to promote health, wellbeing and disease prevention to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
Stage 1 opened in 2013 and provides onsite specialist services including cardiology, endocrinology, ophthalmology, hepatology, paediatrics, health support services such as diabetes education, dietetics, social work, psychology and GP services.
