Construction of the new Emergency Department Stage 1B expansion within Caboolture Hospital precinct has recently been completed. The SOPD (Specialty Out Patients Department) facility opened to Queensland Health staff and public patients last month.
The project involved a new specialist outpatient facility consisting of 3 main buildings and additional car parking for the department and the overall hospital facility. A brand new access road was also delivered and handed over to the hospital as part of the 3 separable portions of the contract works. This access road allows public traffic to bypass the conventional entry to the hospital and greatly assist in easing traffic congestion through the hospital grounds. The additional car parking has also alleviated parking congestion and traffic volumes.
QLD Health are incredibly happy with the end product and are currently partnering closely with Paynters on a number of projects across the State.
