Premier Campbell Newman visited the Sunshine Coast today to turn the first sod on Australia’s first major new, not replacement, public hospital for more than 20 years.
Mr Newman said the long-awaited hospital would revolutionise the delivery of public health care services to the Sunshine Coast.
“When the hospital opens in 2016, it will provide a range of vital health care services that are currently unavailable locally,” Mr Newman said.
“This will mean that approximately 10,000 local residents each year will no longer have to travel to Brisbane to receive important medical services.”
