New Bundaberg Hospital project

Project overview

Planning for the new $1.2 billion Bundaberg Hospital project is well under way. This will be the largest health infrastructure investment that the Wide Bay region has seen.

The new hospital site, land adjacent to the Bundaberg Ring Road and west of Kay McDuff Drive, is about five kilometres south of Bundaberg’s central business district.

The new Bundaberg Hospital will provide:

  • more beds and treatment spaces
  • an expanded emergency department
  • enhanced acute, medical, surgical and mental health services
  • enhanced clinical support services.

By increasing capacity and capability, we will reduce wait times and enable more people to receive care closer to home. Modern and culturally appropriate facilities, amenities and equipment will also support the delivery of enhanced care and patient wellbeing.

The new facility will have a flexible design with spaces that can be repurposed in the future to meet the changing healthcare needs of the community. The design will also have a clear strategy for future expansion, if and when needed.

In December 2022, the project reached an exciting milestone with early works starting to establish access to the new hospital site via an extension of Johanna Boulevard near Eggmolesse Street. These works will pave the way for the main works contractor to hit the ground running once appointed next year.
