The Queensland Government has just announced the commencement of the procurement of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital as a Public Private Partnership, opening the project up to private sector investment.

This AUS$2bn project represents the single largest health project in Australia. When completed the Kawana based hospital campus will include a 738 bed public hospital and a 200 bed private hospital. The facility will also be a centre for learning and innovation, and will include academic research and teaching facilities. The private hospital is planned to be operational by the end of 2013 and the public hospital by the end of 2016.  

Turner & Townsend are the lead technical advisors to this project, supported by an integrated team of health and specialist technical advisors, and have contributed significantly to the project reaching this major milestone.

Roger Simons, Director of Project Management, said, " We are all delighted to have reached this major milestone and it is a credit to the whole project team, of which we are very proud to be a part. After all the careful and crucial planning we are now entering a very exciting phase of the project."
