The Sunshine Coast Health Precinct is one of the largest health infrastructure projects being developed in Australia. It incorporates the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, Sunshine Coast Health Institute, Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital, the Health Hub and Birtinya Town Centre.
The precinct is predicted to contribute an estimated A$3.2 billion to the Sunshine Coast economy and a further A$447 million per year thereafter from operations (Urbis, 2012).
|Sunshine Coast University Hospital is a tertiary teaching hospital. Opened in April 2017 with 450 beds, the hospital is planned to grow to 738 beds by 2021.||
Sunshine Coast Health Institute boasts world class research facilities and advanced medical training to further advance the local health industry.
|Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital is a 200 bed private facility providing a comprehensive range of inpatient and day services across a wide range of specialities.|
The 17-hectare Health Hub is a greenfield health and medical area, offering the strategic opportunity to be located next to the two university hospitals and the Birtinya Town Centre in a stunning waterfront position.
The Health Hub provides up to 32,000 square metres of dedicated health and medical space in addition to residential accommodation and mixed-use facilities. All land uses within the Health Hub support the functioning of the university hospitals.
The Health Hub is currently home to medical support, research, allied health and vertical aged-care, consulting suites, high level hotels, a childcare centre and retail offerings.
Lots within the Health Hub are available for development and lease, with many sites under construction or established.
The Health Hub and new town centre offer commercial opportunities to invest in sites for medical and allied health services, research and accommodation, including:
- leasing of purpose designed premises
- purchasing strata-titled premises
- securing a site to develop a custom designed building.
