Redcliffe Hospital will undergo a major expansion that will significantly deliver 204 beds and improve its clinical and ambulatory services.

The planned refurbishment is also expected to add to the capacity of the hospital’s support services for inpatient and outpatient needs, ensuring that Redcliffe residents will continue to access world-class health services.

In a statement, Health Minister Yvette D’Ath said that the expansion is an answer to the demand for health care in the region as the population of Redcliffe increases. 

“Redcliffe is my electorate, and I know the demand for health care is increasing. I’m pleased to announce that the Palaszczuk Government will deliver a $1.06 billion expansion of the Redcliffe Hospital that will add around 204 more beds to the facility.”

By the second half of 2026, residents will be able to take advantage of the new ambulatory care building whilst the clinical services building will start operating in mid-2027. The completion of the hospital’s renovation, on the other hand, will finish in 2028. 


“Building health infrastructure provides local job opportunities, and this project will create around 2,573 jobs during the construction,” Member for Murrumba Steven Miles said.

In addition to this expansion, the Queensland Government has also funded $9.78 billion for new hospitals in over six years. Under the Capacity Expansion Program, three new hospitals, a new Queensland Cancer Centre and 11 hospital expansion projects across the state will deliver 2220 additional beds from 2024 to 2028. 

“Along with our significant investment in new hospitals and facilities, this year’s Budget provides $6.78 billion in additional operational funding over the next four years to deliver on our commitment to employ an extra 9475 staff in this term of government,” Ms D’Ath said. 

“Investment in our healthcare workforce is vital – they are our greatest asset, and the reason Queenslanders continue to receive first-class healthcare every day.”
