TPCH is in the final stages of a $134 million dollar redevelopment which will see a significant expansion of services to meet the health care needs of people living in the northern suburbs of Brisbane. The first stage is now complete, and this has resulted in the construction of a three storey building accommodating a new Emergency Department, a 27 bed state-of-the-art Intensive Care Unit, two new Operating Theatres and two new 30-bed inpatient units. The second stage of the redevelopment which is nearing completion will result in the commissioning of a further two new pperating theatres, two new inpatient units, redevelop our Day Surgery facilities, and expand our specialist outpatient services. In order to provide our comprehensive range of health care services, TPCH employs more than 4000 staff, of which approximately 1800 are nurses.
It is well recognised that the provision of quality clinical practice experiences are essential in the preparation of professional competent graduate nurses. We are absolutely committed to the provision of safe, high quality, clinical learning experiences for nursing students. This website has been designed to provide you with the necessary information to make the most of your clinical learning experiences in our health services.
On behalf of the staff, we welcome you and hope that your clinical placement in our health services is both challenging and rewarding.
