Nambour General Hospital Redevelopment

Project summary

Nambour General Hospital’s role has changed since the commencement of services at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH), in March 2017.

Nambour General Hospital will provide a significant proportion of Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service (SCHHS) sub-acute service capability and a large volume of low acuity surgical capacity, thereby supporting the tertiary services offered at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital. Nambour General Hospital will also be the primary source of emergency care for residents of Nambour and the surrounding region. Nambour General Hospital Redevelopment aims to provide an economic and sustainable facility that responds to the local health service need, both now and into the future
