First-time parents Brandon and Judi are soaking up these special moments with their new little sunshine, Nora Harper, born on 16 August at 12:23pm. ☀️

Nora spent her first couple of days in special care on oxygen before being able to spend the night with Mum from Wednesday.

“We are just waiting for her jaundice levels to drop and then we will go home, hopefully tomorrow,” Judi said.

“I kept saying that we won’t know her name until we see her, and Brandon was so sceptical about that, but when she came out we just knew she was a Nora.” 💛

Jennie is the Director of Commercial Services, part of the delivery team responsible for the building and design process on the Caboolture Hospital Redevelopment Project. 👋

The project is full steam ahead, with the new clinical services building having already reached the top level and is well underway with the fit out stage.

The 1000+ space multi-level car park has also reached fit out stage, with each level conveniently being painted a bright colour as one of the ways to help its users remember where they parked their car. The clinical services building and car park are both on track for completion in mid 2023.

Behind the scenes other projects are taking place by the redevelopment team such as a kitchen refurbishment, ready to support the bigger hospital.

But the existing hospital is not being forgotten, with some areas to commence refurbishment after the clinical services building completes in mid-2023 and completed by 2024. We are so excited to see the finished product!

Gaynor is ‘knot’ your average type of scout! Leaving behind her knowledge in rope-tying and canoeing, she instead leans on her quick-thinking as a theatre nurse scrub scout at #Redcliffe Hospital. 🏞😄🌲

She relies on her scout problem-solving skills to manage the incoming traumas through seven emergency theatres, attesting that no two days are ever the same.

“You never know what will be coming in with cases from orthopaedic to emergency traumas, maternity cases and more,” Gaynor said. 🚑

"My role is responsible for coordinating the incoming surgeries and making sure the surgeons have everything they need to just get in there and go.

“You become familiar with the preferences of surgeons including the positioning of patients, the specific instrumentation they like to use, and which ones prefer a quiet theatre versus a little Bob Dylan playlist.”

With so many exciting upgrades on the horizon at Redcliffe Hospital, including the 204-bed expansion, now is the time to join the team.

Baby Isabelle has just passed her hearing test at Caboolture Hospital, meaning she won’t need to see audiologist Georgia again until she is three and a half years old.👂

Isabelle cleared her new-born screening, but a risk factor was identified, meaning she needed to be monitored from birth until she received the good news at her recent screening. But it’s not just babies that the audiology team see, looking after those up to 16 years of age, across a range of reasons from speech and language delay through to middle ear problems.

"We are a small team with a big impact,” Georgia said.

"We try and make the appointments as fun as possible for the little ones, through the use of toys, puppets, games and even bubbles in the hopes of reducing anxiety levels.” 💞🧸🪀

“After my husband passed away 22 years ago, our downstairs neighbour moved in to help share the cost of rent. He has just passed away and I’m not sure where to move next. I still want to live independently, because I know I will treat my children like they’re still kids if we live together, even though they’re adults now. They’ll say to me ‘maaa leave us alone’.”
