Logan residents will now receive even higher quality healthcare closer to home, with the centerpiece of the Logan Hospital Stage 1 expansion now complete.

Health Minister Shannon Fentiman was joined by Deputy Premier Cameron Dick and Logan MPs to officially open the new hospital building, which has been expanded with four new floors, new wards, and hundreds more beds.

Several new wards have already opened their doors to patients, including a new cardiac ward, coronary care unit, medical assessment and planning unit, general medical ward and a palliative care ward.

The remaining wards are expected to be operational by late 2024, further enhancing the hospital’s ability to service the growing Logan community.

The milestone means that Stage 1 of the Logan Hospital expansion is now largely complete, with a new Intensive Care Unit, additional Emergency Department capacity and minor refurbishment works remaining.

“Logan is one of Queensland’s fastest-growing regions with the population set to exceed 500,000 by 2036,” said Minister for Health, Mental Health and Ambulance Service and Minister for Women Shannon Fentiman.

“That’s why the Miles Labor Government is making a record investment towards the health and wellbeing of the Logan community.

“This is one of Queensland’s largest-ever hospital expansions and it’s fantastic to see it is already providing additional care for locals here in Logan.

“I am so excited to officially open this brand new, vertically expanded building – the centerpiece of the Stage 1 hospital expansion.

“The Miles Labor Government is delivering the staff and infrastructure our health system needs to continue caring for Queenslanders in the coming years.”

Artist’s impressions have also been released showcasing plans for the new clinical services building as part of Stage 2, which include 112 additional beds and new operating theatres.

Construction of Stage 2 is set to begin later this year.

This project is part of the Miles Labor Government’s $14 billion Health Big Build, under Queensland’s Big Build initiative.

The plan to deliver new and expanded hospitals helps ensure continued access to world-class healthcare for rapidly growing regions – boosting capacity through expansions to 11 existing hospitals, building three new hospitals, seven satellite hospitals, and building a dedicated cancer centre.

“Like all Queenslanders, the people of Logan deserve the best possible healthcare and this expansion is delivering just that,” said Deputy Premier, Treasurer, Minister for Trade and Investment Cameron Dick.

“When I was Health Minister, I announced the Logan Hospital Expansion and through that process we consulted the community to find out what they wanted.

“We are now nearing the completion of the $460 million Stage 1 expansion, including 206 beds and treatment spaces.

“And I’m even more excited for the $530 million Stage 2, which will deliver 10 operating theatres, 112 beds and so much more, all to be completed by the end of 2026.”

Queensland’s Health Big Build is delivering over 3,300 additional hospital beds, including 199 in 2023 and 239 in 2024.
