Sunshine Coast University Hospital
The Queensland Government is investing in a new public tertiary teaching hospital on the Sunshine Coast to meet growing demand for hospital services and train local residents to be the health workforce of the future.
Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH) is scheduled to open in late 2016 and will offer a range of new and expanded health care services, supported by highly trained and specialised staff, to safely care for patients with complex or life-threatening conditions. This means about 10,000 patients each year will no longer have to travel to Brisbane for complex treatment.
The hospital will open with about 450 beds in 2016, growing to a 738 bed facility by 2021. It can be expanded to 900 beds beyond 2021 if needed.
SCUH will be built as part of the 20 ha Kawana Health Campus that will incorporate the hospital’s Skills, Academic and Research Centre (SARC), a co-located private hospital operated by Ramsay Health Care, and the Kawana Health Innovation Park that will accommodate other health-related commercial developments.
SCUH will be the centrepiece in the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service’s network of hospitals, which includes Nambour General Hospital, Caloundra Health Service, Gympie Hospital, Maleny Soldiers Memorial Hospital and a comprehensive range of community and primary health services.
