Queensland Health, Metro North Hospital and Health Service
The infrastructure at Caboolture Hospital is operating at capacity in a number of areas, and the hospital currently faces long Emergency Department waiting times and overcrowding.
The hospital’s current physical condition and functionality is not supporting the efficient and effective delivery of contemporary health services at the hospital. Forecast demand, driven by a growing and ageing population and high levels of chronic disease, is expected to place further pressure on the hospital.
Queensland Health, Metro South Hospital and Health Service
Logan Hospital is situated in a major growth and development corridor of South East Queensland. The population is expected to increase by 43.3 per cent by 2026, or 3.9 per cent annually. It is estimated that by 2026, Logan Hospital would experience a shortfall of up to 450 beds without delivery of additional capacity.
