Maleny Soldiers Memorial Hospital

The Minister for Health, Mental Health, and Ambulance Services has today announced that construction is due to begin on the Maleny Soldiers Memorial Hospital from late September.

External construction works are expected to begin in September, with internal works planned to start in November.

The Palaszczuk Government has invested $2.8 million to upgrade infrastructure at the Maleny Soldier’s Memorial Hospital and improve the patient experience for the Maleny community.

Minister for Health, Mental Health and Ambulance Services Shannon Fentiman explained that the investment will see a significant infrastructure uplift including internal and external works, a new mechanical plant, and a new roof.

"We know that the Maleny region is growing, and these works will ensure the facility and its health care workers can continue to deliver the best health care possible."

To carry out the works, some ward beds will be temporarily relocated to Nambour General Hospital to ensure patient comfort and safety.

The Sunshine Coast Health Assets and Infrastructure team has been working with clinical teams to ensure the least possible impact to patients, and to allow the completion of the works as quickly as possible.

The emergency department and specialist outpatients will remain open for the duration of the works.
