Bundaberg Hospital

A new Bundaberg Hospital

Following Queensland Government approval, Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service is working with Building Queensland to prepare a detailed business case for a new hospital in Bundaberg, on a new site.

The detailed business case process is very comprehensive and is laid out by the State Government, as per all major infrastructure planning in the state.

A new hospital for Bundaberg is likely to be a build for at least the next 50 years – it’s important to get the planning right now, so we can provide the best possible health care and the best possible outcomes for the whole Wide Bay region into the future.

We want our community to be fully aware of how planning is progressing, and we will keep you informed as the process develops through a variety of channels, including this web page.

 

The process

The detailed business case process involves:

Selecting a site
An Expression of Interest process to see if, in addition to state-owned land, there are any suitable privately owned or local government-owned land options

Developing a detailed masterplan
Including facility size and design, supporting services and infrastructure needs, hospital access, car parking and cost analysis

Workforce planning
Continuing to plan for the significant growth in a broad range of health roles and support services

Community and stakeholder engagement
Involving clinicians, private partners, government and non‑government agencies, consumers and community members.
