Construction phase

Sunshine Coast Public University Hospital PPP Project

The Exemplar Health consortium, including Lend Lease, Spotless, Siemens and Capella Capital, was awarded the contract to design, build, finance and maintain a new hospital located at Kawana on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

Delivering an initial 450 bed public teaching hospital, SCPUH will have the capacity to grow to over 738 beds, offering a range of new and expanded health care services to meet the increasing demand for hospital services on the Sunshine Coast.

As a result an estimated 10,000 patients each year will no longer have to travel to Brisbane for complex treatment.

Features include:

  • Comprehensive cancer centre with four radiation therapy bunkers
  • New innovative technologies to support patient care including hybrid operating theatres and robotic technologies in pharmacy
  • Extensive children and maternity services
  • A 54 bed mental health unit including child and adolescent services
  • Skills, Academic and Research Centre with Education partners
  • 100 place child care centre and 1000m2 of retail space
  • 3,500 car parking spaces.

Procured by the Queensland Government via a public private partnership (PPP) delivery model, the new Sunshine Coast Public University Hospital (SCPUH) project involves a contract term of approximately 25 years from the scheduled completion of the design and construction phase in late 2016.

Over the this duration Exemplar Health will deliver a range of facility management services to support the operator, Queensland Health, including building maintenance, help desk, security, pest control, car parking, and grounds maintenance.
