Built appointed to deliver $465m Stage 1 QEII Jubilee Hospital
Built are excited to announce we have been selected to develop the Stage 1 Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Hospital that will deliver new theatres, beds, and multiple specialist clinical facilities to the Metro South Health Region and generate 1, 120 construction jobs in the process.
The $465 million QEII Jubilee Hospital Expansion will deliver 112 additional beds at the precinct, and significantly boost capacity for in-demand elective surgeries through a new dedicated facility and will help meet the growing demand for health services on Brisbane’s southside.
Minister for Health and Ambulance Services, Shannon Fentiman said: “The addition of 112 beds will significantly boost capacity to the region, and the South-Brisbane community can continue to put their trust in our health system.”
The QEII Jubilee Hospital project forms part of the Capacity Expansion Project (CEP), the largest ever investment in Queensland Health history with a $9.8 billion budget forecast across 15 hospitals. Built are incredibly proud to be part of this important project.
Built’s General Manager Queensland, Christian Adamson said: “We are thrilled to be selected by the Queensland Government to deliver the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Hospital as a part of the Queensland Health Capital Expansion Program.
“Expanding on Built’s extensive healthcare capabilities, we will deliver vital modern hospital facilities including new theatres, bed, and multiple specialist clinical facilities.
“As an Australian owned business operating in Queensland for more than 20 years, Built are very proud to be part of this large-scale healthcare project that will benefit the wider community for many years to come.”
Metro South Hospital and Health Service Acting Chief Executive Noelle Cridland said: “The QEII Hospital Expansion is a huge win for Metro South Health and the Brisbane southside community.
“This major expansion – together with the $25 million rapid expansion which is already underway will increase bed capacity at QEII Hospital by more than half.
“This is an exciting milestone for QEII Hospital, and we look forward to providing even more high-quality healthcare services close to home for our local community.”
