The first stage of a $1 billion investment into Logan Hospital will create 1500 clinical and non-clinical jobs over the next two years as 206 new beds and treatment spaces come online.
An inaugural Logan Hospital Careers Fair held on March 4 gave hundreds of Logan residents the chance to speak with current staff about the roles on offer and how to register their interest.
Logan Hospital serves one of Queensland’s largest growth corridors meaning demand for health services continues to rise.
The $460 million Stage 1 Expansion project will deliver 206 additional beds and treatment spaces at Logan Hospital, and an additional 112 beds will be delivered by 2026 as part of the $530 million Stage 2 Expansion. This is in addition to the refurbishment and expansion of maternity services which is continuing.
Member for Waterford, Shannon Fentiman said Logan is a wonderful place to live and work, and one of the fastest growing communities in Queensland.
“We need doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, cleaners, wardies, food services people – we need them all.”
“Logan Hospital is currently one of our region’s biggest employers, and I’m so excited by this announcement to recruit 1,500 more.”
“Logan Hospital is also a world-class teaching and research hospital, providing opportunities in specialist services like acute medicine, surgery, rehabilitation, cardiology, orthopaedics, renal medicine and maternity.”
