The infrastructure at Caboolture Hospital is operating at capacity in a number of areas and the hospital is facing long Emergency Department waiting times and overcrowding. The current asset 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.


The options being investigated in the proposal include a combination of new build and refurbishment of existing facilities.


The project is expected to:

  • increase capacity
  • improve community health outcomes
  • reduce travel cost for patients
  • increase workforce sustainability
  • improve operating efficiencies, safety and functionality of the hospital.
