Brian Ginn

Sadly April 9th 2016 Brian Ginn, a staunch supporter of the building of the new hospital and a great member of our group, passed away. His greatest wish was to see the opening of Sunshine Coast University Hospital. Sadly this has not happened, but he certainly played a part in helping achieving this building and was able to see it’s near completion. Brian will be missed. RIP Maureen/ SCUHAG

University Hospital a step closer

Bianca Clare Sunshinbe Coast Daily | 27th May 2010

PLANNING for the construction of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital is full steam ahead.
In the latest positive step towards the revised 2016 delivery date, an engineer services advisor has been appointed to the $1.97 billion project.
Queensland Health has engaged Umow Lai to provide a full range of engineering services, including mechanical, electrical, fire, communications, hydraulics, lifts, civil and structural services.
Last November, Conrad Gargett Architecture was announced as the master planner for the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.
Consultancy firm Turner and Townsend will work alongside Conrad Gargett as lead technical advisers for the project
A considerable amount of work had been undertaken before the release of the preliminary master plan last month.
This included original concept planning in 2006 through to project definition in 2008.It is anticipated it will be updated in 2011, and again in 2012, to reflect the preferred public design.
The State Government intends to deliver the new hospital through a Public Private Partnership (PPP), requiring a financial investment by the private sector.
The Sunshine Coast University Hospital was delayed in 2009 because the global financial crisis had made it difficult for the private sector to secure funding to bid for a large-scale project.
The new hospital will be built on a 20-hectare greenfield site at Kawana.
The $1.97 billion hospital will open with 450 beds in 2016, increasing to 738 beds by 2021.


Co-located will be a private hospital, to be constructed by 2013.
Expressions of interest are out for the private hospital operator.
Queensland Health intends to purchase 70 beds from the operator in the first year and 110 the following year.
When completed, the two hospitals will have about 1000 beds.
Site capacity planning currently envisages a total of 1200 beds.
The project will also include an academic and research centre.


Umow Lai director Elizabeth Coe said her firm had extensive experience in the hospital sector.“Current projects include the proposed new $1.7 billion Royal Adelaide Hospital,” Ms Coe said.As part of their consulting services, Umow Lai’s team, including John Mullen & Partners, will also be developing the master planning design for the road infrastructure to be built for the new Kawana precinct

The catchment population for the Sunshine Coast University Hospital is expected to increase by 8600 to 9000 annually.

The State Government is a step closer to delivering on its commitment of a new hospital for the Sunshine Coast with Conrad Gargett Architecture announced as the master planner for the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Health Paul Lucas said Conrad Gargett will undertake detailed site master planning of the new 450-bed Sunshine Coast University Hospital and surrounding health campus, with master planning work now underway.

“This project is a massive development, and the State Government is working to ensure we deliver the right mix of health services for people on the Sunshine Coast,” Mr Lucas said.
Renowned consultancy firm Turner & Townsend will work alongside Conrad Gargett as lead technical advisors for the project.
The award winning global consultancy will lead all technical aspects of the hospital, ensuring a modern world class facility.
