The Queensland Government is delivering the nation’s largest health capital program, which includes the state’s historic Capacity Expansion Program, to ensure Queenslanders living in some of the state’s fast-growing regions have access to world-class health care now and into the future.
The Capacity Expansion Program will deliver three new hospitals, including the new Coomera Hospital, the new Queensland Cancer Centre, and major expansions to 11 hospitals across the state.
The $1.3 billion new Coomera Hospital is a state-of-the-art healthcare facility designed to cater to the growing population of the northern Gold Coast corridor. With its advanced services and well-connected location, the hospital aims to ensure residents have ease of access to world-class medical care close to home.

Preparatory works and site establishment have already occurred to make the site safe, including demolition of site dwellings, setting up site storage facilities and fencing off work areas to keep staff and the public safe. Construction early works, including earthworks and clearing of some vegetation in accordance with the Fauna Management Plan, are underway.
The new Coomera Hospital is expected to be completed in the second half of 2027.
Multiplex Constructions was appointed as the Managing Contractor for the new Coomera Hospital in June 2023. The project team has commenced schematic design phase, expanding upon earlier high-level concept designs. This will be followed by detailed design. Before the main construction phase can begin, the schematic and detailed design phases of the project and a value-for-money guaranteed construction price need to be agreed and completed.
The site for the new Coomera Hospital was purchased by Queensland Health in 2008, identified for its optimal size, scalability, and strategic location between the Gold Coast University Hospital and Logan Hospital. Key features of this location include:
- its accessibility via roads and public transport
- safe positioning from flood-prone areas
- ease of access to the M1 motorway
- proximity to residential areas
The development approval for the new Coomera Hospital sets out a range of conditions to be met for fauna management and the removal of some vegetation for the construction of the new hospital building and its supporting infrastructure. These site-specific conditions are being met through a detailed Fauna Management Plan which is being proactively implemented by specialist resources during onsite works.
We are committed to keeping our site neighbours, community and stakeholders up to date on project progress, milestones and construction updates.
