Satellite Hospitals: Better Care, Closer to Home

We are building on this strong record with a $265 million investment that will deliver seven Satellite Hospitals across South East Queensland, part of a $889 million infrastructure investment commitment that will provide new and better hospitals all over Queensland.

The new facilities will operate as satellite campuses, effectively mini-hospitals providing services in urban areas so that Queenslanders can get care closer to home and in a more convenient setting.

The Palaszczuk Government’s program of hospital expansions and redevelopments is also supporting vital local construction jobs as a key part of our ongoing Economic Recovery Plan. The Satellite Hospital program alone will support 768 jobs during construction.
