About Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service

Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service (SCHHS) provides public health care to communities in the Sunshine Coast, Noosa and Gympie areas of south-east Queensland. Our catchment extends from the coast to the hinterland, from Caloundra in the south to Gympie in the north. Currently this covers a population of about  390,000 people.

Exceptional future

Our region has an exceptional future, with a population which continues to grow. To give an increasing number of patients the treatment they need, in the region they choose to live, SCHHS is growing too.

Exceptional change

In March 2017, SCHHS opened Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH) - a $1.8 billion facility and the first new, not replacement, hospital in Australia in 20 years. This included investment in more than 1000 new staff, state-of-the-art equipment, and a unique partnership for education, training and research. Further exceptional change will be delivered in the coming years, as we develop tertiary services, continue to invest in technology across the health service, and redevelop our hospitals at Nambour and Caloundra.

Exceptional care

This change will increase the capacity, complexity and quality of our services, in the areas our community needs most. It will enable further opportunities for our people to thrive. And it will develop education, training and research to help us further grow further into the future. All this will help us achieve our vision, of ‘health and wellbeing through exceptional care’.
