Tender issued for $40m Townsville health facility

A $40 million project that is set to deliver a new state-of-the-art health facility and reduce wait times for healthcare in a fast-growing Townsville suburb is a step closer to reality, with the tender for the project being issued, Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk announced today.

“The Kirwan Community Health Campus will soon be a hive of activity as construction kicks off in the second half of 2023,” the Premier said.

“The expansion of this facility is a much-needed development and a key project that the Member for Thuringowa, Aaron Harper, has advocated strongly for.

“The Kirwan area is rapidly growing, and this project will ensure that locals have access to appropriate, modern health services.”

The expanded campus will include a new two-storey facility containing pre and post-natal care, oral health services, and additional outpatient treatment centres.

Minister for Health and Ambulance Services, Yvette D’Ath said that the investment would improve the patient experience and provide more modern facilities for the Kirwan community.

“I know that the Kirwan Community Health Campus staff are incredibly dedicated workers who are looking forward to providing excellent care in the expanded purpose-built facility,” Minister D’Ath said.

“Our incredible staff do an amazing job looking after the local community, and projects like this are essential in helping them do so.”

The campus will be Green Star-certified, meaning the design, construction, build and fit out will include measures to limit the building’s environmental impact.

Construction work on the expansion is expected to be completed by late 2024.
