Lendlease has been appointed as Managing Contractor to deliver the $394.6 million major Caboolture Hospital redevelopment projects.
The project will deliver 130 more beds and expanded services with a mixture of new buildings and refurbished existing facilities, including a new Clinical Services Building and multi-storey car park.
The upgrade includes an enhanced special care nursery and medical day stay unit, medical records facility, pharmacy and pathology, as well as a new main entry, café and visitor lounge.
Caboolture Hospital Executive Director and Director Medical Services Dr Lance Le Ray said the impressive redevelopment was an exciting milestone for the Caboolture community, with construction taking place across the next few years and set for completion in 2023.
“The new five-storey Clinical Services Building will house a new much-larger Emergency Department (ED) and see more beds available across a range of services including rehabilitation, palliative care, geriatric evaluation, medical, intensive care and cardiac care,” Dr Le Ray said.
“The $41.7 million multi-storey car park will ensure greater accessibility for patients and their families and will be combined with new access routes to the hospital.”
Lendlease General Manager for Building Queensland Brad Protheroe said the team were expected to total more than 890,000 hours on the project, which would be added to a long list of successful hospital and health projects delivered.
“Our appointment as Managing Contractor for the Caboolture Hospital redevelopment reinforces the trust placed in us by the Queensland Government to help shape the future of our State’s health services,” Mr Protheroe said.
Design of the Clinical Services Building is progressing as planned with project construction expected to start mid-2020.
