Long line

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  will open with about 450 beds in 2017, with ability to grow to more than 738 beds.

The public hospital is being built as part of the 20-hectare Sunshine Coast Health Campus that will incorporate the hospital's Sunshine Coast Health Institute (SCHI), the collocated Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital and opportunities for health-related commercial developments.

Sunshine Coast University Hospital will be the centrepiece of the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service's network of hospitals, which includes Nambour General Hospital, Caloundra Hospital, Gympie Hospital, Maleny Soldiers Memorial Hospital and a comprehensive range of community and primary health services.
