Construction of the new state-of-the-art public health facility at Herston Quarter was marked today by a visit from the Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk. Also attending was the Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick, and Member for McConnel Grace Grace MP.
The Premier and ministerial team were welcomed by Australian Unity Group Managing Director Rohan Mead and Metro North Hospital and Health Service Board Member Geoff Hardy, who hosted a tour of the construction site.
Expected to be in operation in 2021, the specialist public health facility is the result of a public-private partnership between Australian Unity’s Healthcare Property Trust and Metro North Hospital and Health Service. The facility will include 184 in-patient beds, seven operating theatres, three endoscopy rooms and outpatient treatment rooms for a range of specialties.
