Caboolture Hospital is poised to deliver even more health services and improved parking to one of the fastest growing areas in south-east Queensland.
Construction group Lendlease have been awarded the stage two contract to deliver the Caboolture Hospital Redevelopment Project (CHRP), one of the state’s most critical health infrastructure projects.
Lendlease, managing contractor for the first stage of works, will now lead construction of the redevelopment of Caboolture Hospital and the new multi-storey car park.
The redevelopment, which includes a commitment of $352.9 million for the redevelopment of Caboolture Hospital and $46.6 million to deliver a new multi-storey car park, will increase the hospital’s bed capacity and ensure the community has access to a modern health facility with new specialist healthcare services.
The redevelopment of Caboolture Hospital is needed to ensure the hospital has the capacity and scope of services to meet the growing needs of the Caboolture and surrounds community.
It will provide the Caboolture community with a modern health facility that can deliver specialised healthcare and complex services to those that need it most, closer to home.
Lendlease is busy progressing with Stage 2 works, which includes building the five-storey clinical services building, multi-storey car park and the delivery of a refurbishment program that will modernise spaces within the existing hospital.
Lendlease Building General Manager, Brad Protheroe said the team was focussed on a redevelopment design that catered to the growing operational requirements of the hospital.
“We have worked closely with the Queensland Government, Caboolture Hospital and Metro North Health Service to identify a design that meets the needs of all key stakeholders, practitioners, patients and visitors to the hospital,” Mr Protheroe said.
This project will also importantly serve as the testing grounds for local initiatives in relation to sustainable construction practices – a key target of Lendlease’s global campaign, Mission Zero, that aims to tackle climate change.”
