Construction on the Caboolture Satellite Hospital in Queensland, Australia, has been completed and the facility is on track to open in August this year.
The hospital is part of the Palaszczuk Government’s Satellite Hospitals Program and will provide improved healthcare services to the growing Caboolture community.
It will have a minor injury and illness clinic and a sleep studies clinic, as well as provide oral health services, medical imaging and diagnostic services, and appointments with mental health specialists.
In addition, the hospital will include an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Hub.
The hospital will have the capacity to accommodate 600 outpatient appointments and provide care for up to 490 walk-in patients per week.
The Caboolture Satellite Hospital is part of the government’s larger healthcare investment plan, which is delivering new hospitals, more services, beds, and frontline health workers in Queensland.
Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said: “The Caboolture Satellite Hospital will expand the range of services available to the Moreton Bay community and deliver them closer to home.
“Our government will continue to put the needs of Queenslanders first while investing in the services needed to support the rapid growth we are experiencing.
“I look forward to seeing this facility bustling with doctors, nurses, and patients in the not-too-distant future.”
