Kilcoy Hospital continues to enhance health services it offers to the local community, which is located about 94 kilometres north-west of Brisbane.
The hospital was established in 1912 and now has 21 beds with a four bed emergency service area, providing immediate emergency treatment, general medicine, allied health and management of specific conditions.
It has expanded its clinical services to include some allied health services and maternity outpatients and can provide a palliative care bed in a hospice environment.
The hospital recently welcomed the town’s first public dental service for adults. This comes after an extensive, three-year refurbishment program which has modernised the facility and seen the introduction of several new services by visiting specialists or Telehealth technology, meaning local residents have better access to high quality care closer to home, including cardiac treatment.
Patients enjoy freshly cooked meals each day and appreciate the beautiful gardens that surround the buildings, adding to its appeal. The hospital offers great views of nearby Somerset Dam and other local landmarks.
Kilcoy Hospital also has strong links with other Metro North Hospital and Health Service facilities and will transfer patients to larger facilities if their condition warrants a higher level of ongoing care.
