Nambour General Hospital has a proud history of providing services to the Sunshine Coast community since the 1920s. The hospital is undergoing an $86 million Redevelopment Project, with construction commencing in 2019. The redevelopment will increase the bed capacity at Nambour to better service the growing health needs of the Sunshine Coast. It’s expected to increase by 35 per cent by 2031.
The redevelopment will be delivered within the existing hospital and includes an increased capacity of emergency care, more beds for mental health patients, increased capacity of wards for surgical and medical patients, a new same-day rehabilitation unit, a new purpose-built space for the renal dialysis unit, relocation and refurbishment of cancer care services, including same day, medical infusions and chemotherapy, a new central sterilising unit, a new courtyard and drop off zone located near the emergency department, and a new kitchen.
