During its grand unveiling on Saturday, 19th August, residents toured the new building while learning about the health services on offer and meeting hospital staff, all while enjoying a sausage sizzle and family entertainment.
The opening of the satellite hospital is set to take pressure off emergency departments and major hospitals in the region while meeting the demand for a fast-growing population in the Redlands.

In additional good news for Shoreline residents and the region’s health services, multi-million-dollar expansions are underway at Redlands Hospital, which include a 28-bed modular ward expansion and Stage 1 Major Hospital Expansion, delivering 37 extra beds and a new ICU.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said these types of hospitals are needed to keep pace with the increased demand for health services as Queensland’s population grows.
“The Redlands Satellite Hospital will be a game changer for the region,” she said.
“Not only will the facility alleviate the pressure felt in the emergency department, but it will also become a safe space for local patients accessing renal dialysis and chemotherapy treatments.”
