The State Government has announced that the Caboolture Hospital redevelopment has commenced and in the initial phase of construction to support one of the fastest growing areas in south-east Queensland.
Lendlease was awarded the Caboolture Hospital Redevelopment contract to construct the critical health infrastructure, providing further health services and new multi-storey car park to the Moreton Region.
Yvette D’Ath, Minister for Health and Ambulance Services outlined that the redevelopment of Caboolture Hospital is needed to ensure the hospital has the capacity and services to meet the growing needs of the Caboolture and surrounds community.
“The Caboolture Hospital Redevelopment will provide the Caboolture community with a modern health facility that can deliver specialised healthcare and complex services to those that need it most”.
“It will not only increase the size of Caboolture Hospital and the scope of services being offered to the community, but it will allow more patients to access the health services they need closer to home”.
“Today’s announcement means Lendlease can progress with Stage 2 works, including building the five- storey clinical services building, the much-needed multi-storey car park and the delivery of a refurbishment program that will modernise spaces within the existing hospital,” Minister D’Ath said.
Mark Ryan, Member for Morayfield outlined that the State Government’s investment in health services to support growth in the community would also support local jobs.
“We know that supporting jobs in construction is an important part of Queensland’s economic recovery,” said Mr Ryan.
“Delivering health infrastructure for the Moreton Bay region is critical to the physical and economic health of Queenslanders.”
Ali King, Member for Pumicestone welcomed the announcement.
“With the first two tower cranes now onsite, we’re ready to build a bigger and better hospital for the Caboolture community and we’re building it in a sustainable way”.
“The Palaszczuk Government continues to deliver for the Moreton Bay region to ensure that our health system remains strong,” said Ms King.
Chris Whiting, Member for Bancroft outlined how the hospital’s redevelopment would complement the State Government’s boost to frontline staff.
“The Palaszczuk Government continues to support our frontline health staff by employing even more doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and paramedics”.
“Over the next four years, Queenslanders will see an extra 9,475 frontline health staff employed”.
“The Palaszczuk Government will continue to invest in our facilities and workforce to keep pace with our growing population,” said Mr Whiting.

Brad Protheroe, General Manager for Lendlease Building outlined how the team was focussed on a redevelopment design that catered to the growing operational requirements of the hospital.

“This project will also importantly serve as the testing grounds for local initiatives in relation to sustainable construction practices – a key target of Lendlease’s global campaign, Mission Zero, that aims to tackle climate change”, Mr Protheroe said.
