Nambour General Hospital has a proud history of providing services to the Sunshine Coast community since the 1920s. The hospital is undergoing an $86 million Redevelopment Project, with construction commencing in 2019. We engaged Lendlease Building as the Managing Contractor for the project and will manage the build. The redevelopment will increase the bed capacity at Nambour to better service the growing health needs of the Sunshine Coast. It's expected to increase by 35 per cent by 2031.
The redevelopment will be delivered within the existing hospital and includes:
- increased capacity of emergency care
- more beds for mental health patients
- increased capacity of wards for surgical and medical patients
- a new same day rehabilitation unit
- a new purpose-built space for the renal dialysis unit
- relocation and refurbishment of cancer care services, including same day medical infusions and chemotherapy
- a new central sterilising unit
- a new courtyard and drop off zone located near the emergency department
- a new kitchen.
While the redevelopment is taking place, the hospital will stay open and still provide the same patient services. However, some services may move to temporary locations. We’ll notify patients in advance of any changes and directions to the new locations.
Your feedback on the redevelopment
We have established a Consumer Advisory Group that will provide feedback to the Redevelopment Project from a community point of view. Consumers were involved in the design phase, with clinical and non-clinical hospital staff throughout 2018. Consultation with community groups is an important aspect of the project. It will help us ensure the facilities are clinically and client focused.
We’ll hold community forums throughout the project. These forums will outline the redevelopment and what this means for the Nambour and surrounding community. If you would like to attend any future forums, you can contact the Project Team by email SC-NGHRedevelopment@health.qld.gov.au.
