Caboolture Hospital is a regional hospital which provides a wide range of clinical services to Caboolture and surrounding communities. We employ more than 1,200 health professionals that together provide high-quality and tender care to more than 150,000 people each year. Our caring team provide outstanding care across an extensive range of clinical areas including obstetrics and gynaecology, general surgery, general medicine, intensive and critical care, emergency medicine, paediatrics, and mental and allied health. The addition of a new 32-bed adult ward and secure Gentlemen and Ladies Aging with Dignity Unit for frail and elderly patients is seeing the start of a very exciting journey to rapidly expand our services and facilities to meet the ever increasing need of the community and an aging population. By 2022, it is anticipated with continued investment in health care in the region, the hospital will continue to grow sharply. The expansion of the hospital capability and services will allow it to stand alongside the Princess Alexandria Hospital in size. Our vision for Caboolture 2022 is to build a better hospital with more than 100 extra beds and a significant enhancement in local Respiratory, Cardiac, Gastroenterology, Rheumatology, Geriatrics and Palliative Care services. In the meantime, the next couple of years will be very exciting with some fabulous milestones delivered including the expansion of the Emergency Department, and completion of the new car park and Specialist Outpatient Department. In 2018, Caboolture Hospital will celebrate 25 years of caring for the local community.

- providing safe, accessible, person centred-care
