$70 Million for Satellite Hospitals in Caboolture and Bribie Island
Bribie Island and Caboolture Satellite Hospitals
Two Satellite Hospitals have been announced for Bribie Island and Caboolture.
$1.6 million in funding has been allocated for community consultation and service planning in the 2020/2021 budget
Service planning and community consultation will help determine what services are provided at the Satellite Hospitals. I know from speaking with you that health commuting is a big issue for the Bribie Island community. That’s why I will be advocating for services like urgent care, renal dialysis and chemotherapy to be included. The Caboolture Satellite Hospital will be an offshoot of the major Caboolture Hospital and will provide outpatient appointment based care. I would love to hear from you what services you think should be provided! Get in touch with me.
Not only will the Satellite Hospitals provide more healthcare closer to home they will create more local jobs. That means 202 construction jobs right here in Pumicestone.
