NEED

The need for an infrastructure upgrade at the Princess Alexandra Hospital has been identified to provide contemporary fit-for-purpose facilities for statewide spinal cord and brain injury rehabilitation, as well as general rehabilitation services. Flexible health solutions are required to respond to changing models of care and future capacity growth at the hospital, in alignment with planning for the broader precinct.

PROPOSAL

The proposal is investigating opportunities for redevelopment at the current hospital to ensure infrastructure for the provision of statewide services is fit-for-purpose into the future, and can enable delivery of contemporary models of care that will facilitate efficient and cost-effective service delivery. Land use impacts from Cross River Rail are being explored to improve precinct master planning to optimise the provision of services.
