The redevelopment of the Kingaroy Hospital is a major investment by the Queensland State Government to meet the needs of the community by delivering healthcare services for the population of the South Burnett.
The project will delivered over a period of four years.
The project will ensure the community has access to better health care facilities close to home with the inclusion of an expanded emergency department including a short stay unit, expanded renal dialysis unit, increased specialist outpatient facilities, establishment of a tele-chemo unit, introduction of a new day surgery unit including new state-of-the-art operating theatres, modern birthing suites and modern wards allowing better patient care and comfort.
The project commenced in 2017 with State Government approval and commencement of the design process including extensive community and user consultation.
Early works were carried out in 2018 to relocate underground services, establish new work areas away from the existing building and remove redundant buildings.
Tenders for the main build were called in early 2019.
Expected completion is scheduled for 2021.
Yes, Kingaroy Hospital will continue to operate as normal throughout the redevelopment project.
As the project works are in such close proximity to the current hospital, the facility will occasionally feel the effects of construction works such as noise and dust, however, we will be working tirelessly with the contractors to minimise disruptions to staff, patients and visitors.
