About the project

The Queensland Government has committed $352.9 million to undertake a significant expansion and redevelopment of the Caboolture Hospital, with a further $41.7 million committed to deliver a new multi-storey carpark.

Over the next four years, Caboolture Hospital will undergo a major expansion and redevelopment with a clear focus on building capacity and modernising health care services.

The Caboolture Hospital Redevelopment includes the construction of new facilities and refurbishment of spaces within the existing hospital, covering a gross floor area of approximately 32,000sqm.

The new five storey Clinical Services Building and the new Multi-Storey Carpark will be built at the front of the hospital. Both buildings will sit between the existing hospital and McKean Street and occupy the space currently used for public parking. Construction is expected to start in mid-2020.

Construction of the new five storey Clinical Services Building will start in late 2020.

Construction of the new Multi-Storey Carpark, which includes approximately 1,080 parking spaces, will start in early 2021.

Access to Caboolture Hospital during construction

Yes. From late September 2020, the main entry into Caboolture Hospital will temporarily move to the back of the hospital.

The new temporary main entry provides safe and convenient access to the hospital for all non-urgent patients, visitors and hospital staff.

The temporary main entry includes a new patient drop-off/pick-up zone, an information booth, a coffee cart, directional signage, and an accessible covered pathway into the hospital.

A short-term Emergency drop-off zone will stay at the front of the hospital, close to the Emergency Department, with vehicle access from McKean Street.

The Emergency drop-off zone can be used by anyone needing fast, direct access to the Emergency Department, including pregnant people in active labour.

After dropping-off, vehicles parked in the emergency drop-off zone will need to be moved to the public carpark located at the back of the hospital.

From late September 2020, a temporary public carpark will open at the back of the hospital, bordering Caboolture State High School.

The temporary public carpark is close to the temporary main entry and can be entered via Bury Street or Mewett Street.

Accessible footpaths link the public carpark to the new main entry into the hospital, as well as Specialist Outpatients, Mental Health and Community and Oral Health buildings.

As parking is in high demand, please allow enough time to find a car park and walk to your destination.

No. All parking on the hospital site will be free during construction.

No. The front public carpark will close in late September 2020 to allow for construction of the new Clinical Services Building to start.

The bus stop (ID 310304) on McKean Street will stay open and a covered and safe footpath will connect pedestrians to the hospital, close to the Emergency Department.

The nearest train station is Caboolture Station and it is approximately 1.5 km from the hospital. There are bus connections available.

Contact Translink on 13 12 30 or visit www.translink.com.au for more public transport information.

From the Temporary Main Entry, the closest toilets are in the Education and Skills Centre, which is open Monday to Friday, 7am-5pm.

Public toilets inside Caboolture Hospital are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can be found on the ground floor:

  • Near the Emergency Department (includes baby change table)
  • Near Lifts 1 and 2
  • Next to the Pharmacy (includes accessible bathroom).

Construction Impacts

As part of the project implementation and approvals, Lendlease are required to have a construction management plan. This plan outlines what will be put in place to minimise impacts from dust, noise and vibration. This is very important as the construction zone is close to homes, schools, and the existing hospital.

Lendlease will be required to prepare a traffic management plan. Construction vehicles will be managed as follows:

  • Traffic controllers will be used when needed along McKean Street and to manage vehicle access to and from the construction site.
  • The hospital ring road will be the primary entry point for construction vehicles to the site office.
  • Construction vehicles will access the site along McKean Street turning into the site at the roundabout.

Future car parking

Yes. Caboolture Hospital will have a new $41.7 million Multi-Storey Carpark.

The new Multi-Storey Carpark will have approximately 1,080 parking spaces in a mix of multi-storey and ground level facilities.

Accessible parking spaces, electric vehicle charging bays and motorcycle parking will all be available in the carpark.

Yes. When the new multi-storey carpark opens, all onsite parking, including spaces outside the multi-storey car park, will be tariffed.

Carparks cost millions of dollars to construct, operate and maintain. Paid parking will be used to pay back Queensland Treasury, and to run and maintain the carpark. This approach allows carparks to be built sooner and with reasonably priced parking, without taking money from front-line health services.

The Department of Health will set the prices for parking at Caboolture Hospital.  The prices will be shared with patients, visitors and staff, along with how to access concessional parking rates, closer to the opening of the Multi-Storey Carpark in 2022.

Yes. We understand the cost of parking can have a real impact for some patients and families. A concession program will be in place to ensure there is discounted parking available to those who:

  • Are experiencing financial hardships
  • Need to attend for extended periods
  • Attend frequently
  • Have special considerations requiring assistance.

Yes. The contribution of volunteers to Caboolture Hospital is valued and free car parking will be provided in a secure car park for them.
