Project delivery overview
Sunshine Coast University Hospital is Queensland's first public hospital public private partnership (PPP).
PPPs have been used by governments all over the world to deliver large social infrastructure projects such as hospitals, schools and roads.
The project will build a new public tertiary teaching hospital that draws on the natural healing environment of the Sunshine Coast and exemplifies best practice in sustainable design principles, construction and operation.
Exemplar Health began construction of the public hospital in October 2012 and it is scheduled to open in April 2017. The project will create thousands of jobs during and after construction and be the catalyst for local commercial and residential development in the surrounding area.
