Construction has commenced on three wards to provide space for 70 extra sub-acute beds, at Gold Coast University Hospital (GCUH). The building will be an extension on the South East of the site.
The new building will feature 24 Geriatric Evaluation and Management (GEM) beds, 12 GEM beds and 12 Memory Support Unit beds and 22 beds in a Complex Management Unit (CMU). The wards will provide purpose-built facilities to support older patients and younger patients with complex behaviours.
Broad Construction was appointed as the Design and Construct contractor in December 2022 for this project. Design has progressed, early works have commenced and building construction is underway.
