Private health care is now closer to home for residents of Springwood and surrounds.

The Brisbane South Private Hospital (BSPH) was officially opened yesterday and is on levels 5 and 6 within the new Springwood Health Hub in Paxton Street.

It offers day surgery and services such as gynaecology, pain management, IVF, and paediatric care.

The seven-storey Springwood Health Hub was completed late last year and the building is home to range of community health care providers, including a general practice.

It includes hospital-grade lifts, a patient drop-off zone, an ambulance bay, and free car parking.

The opening of the private hospital is part of more than $126 million in major health care investments delivered, or under construction, across the city since 2022.

Mayor Darren Power said it was important that new local health services are delivered to keep pace with demand across a fast-growing city.

“This new facility is a testament to Logan City Council’s ongoing advocacy, across all levels of government and the private sector, for high-quality health investment in our region,” Councillor Power said.

“The delivery of new private, and public health facilities in our city means more choice for local families and importantly, removes the need to travel long distances to Brisbane or the Gold Coast for medical care.

“The provision of easily accessible private health care plays an important role in taking pressure off our public health system which helps lead to better health outcomes for everyone.”

Other health services recently completed, or under construction, in Logan include:

  • Meadowbrook Medical Centre, in Logandowns Drive, Meadowbrook. The centre includes a GP and an immunisation clinic.
  • Meadowbrook Health Centre, under construction on Nestor Drive in Meadowbrook. This facility will include public and private health services, alongside a new Logan Urgent and Specialist Care Centre (LUSCC) – catering to minor injury and illness.
  • Yarrabilba Specialist Centre, on Adler Circuit, Yarrabilba, providing cardiology, oncology and radiology services.
  • A new OAPL (Orthopaedic Alliances Pty Ltd) facility in Slacks Creek.

Logan City Council’s Loganlea Road Healthy Street project is also supporting the rollout of new medical facilities in the city’s major Meadowbrook health precinct, which includes the expanding Logan Hospital.

Stage 1 of the project included a shared (bicycle and pedestrian) pathway on both sides of Loganlea Road, landscaping works, shade structures, street lighting, safety cameras and a signalised pedestrian crossing.

Stage 2 includes new recreational spaces, public seating and wide pathways to encourage active transport through the area.

The Healthy Street project received $2.4 million (across both stages) of funding from Queensland Government’s Unite and Recover program.

It was also funded through Council’s Meadowbrook Implementation Fund, and the Division 6 Local Infrastructure Program.
