The Caboolture Satellite Hospital is expected to open in August, while the Bribie Island Satellite Hospital will be finished in 2024.
BIG NEWS – here’s the full list of services for our local Satellite Hospitals!
I know many of you have been waiting to find out what hospital services will be available in the heart of our community.
Bribie Island Satellite Hospital services so far
A Minor Illness and Injury Centre, open 7 days a week from 8am until after 10pm.
The centre will offer walk-in urgent care for common injuries and illnesses like broken bones, infections, strains and sprains, minor head injuries, minor eye issues, minor wounds and fevers.
This means you won’t have to wait for a GP appointment, or drive to Caboolture Hospital, while taking pressure off our busy ED.
We will also have:
- Renal dialysis chairs so people currently travelling long distances multiple times per week can get care closer to home
- Day medical chairs, for services like infusions of iron, IV medications, antibioitics and steroids and blood transfusions, to treat conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, immune deficiencies and infections.
- A rehabilitation gym
- Oral health services
- Medical imaging and diagnostic services includingultrasound, X-ray and pathology to support the services provided
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Hub.
Locals will be able to receive healthcare quickly and close to home from Queensland Health hospital doctors, nurse, allied health professionals and mental health specialists.
Not only will our Satellite Hospitals provide more healthcare closer to home, they have created over 200 local jobs during construction.
