Private hospital expansion a local boost

Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital has kicked off a $9 million expansion set to offer locals greater access to world-class healthcare and potentially life-saving surgery locally.

Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital CEO, Justin Greenwell, said construction was underway on two new operating theatres, seven additional recovery bays and space for a further two new operating theatres in the future.

“We’re excited to expand Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital to offer more Sunshine Coast locals access to top quality health care close to home,” Mr Greenwell said.

“This expansion is in response to demand from locals who have seen the benefits of quality private health care on the Sunshine Coast.

“We offer patients a choice of specialist, and feature some of the best in the state in a large range of specialities, including complex specialties such as neurosurgery, structural heart surgery and orthopaedics using some of the latest robotic technology.

“Having surgery locally also means that patients aren’t needing multiple trips to Brisbane for pre- and post-operative care.”
