Sunshine Coast University Hospital
Location: Birtinya, QLD
Project Start Date: October 2012
Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH) is a world-class, tertiary teaching hospital servicing all parts of the Sunshine Coast and Gympie regions, as the hub in an integrated network of accessible healthcare.
The new $1.8 billion tertiary teaching hospital at Kawana was designed by Architectus Brisbane in association with Rice Daubney Architects and built by Leandlease.
SCUH saw its first patients on 21 March 2017 and was officially opened on 19 April 2017 by the Queensland Premier and Minister for Health and Minister for Ambulance Services.
SCUH opened with about 450 beds, with plans to grow to 738 beds by 2021. Services and capacity at SCUH will continue to develop over the coming years.
During construction, Waco Kwikform provided full height scaffold to all elevations, including engineering, supply and installation.
