Townsville Hospital redevelopment part of 10-year master plan
CPB Contractors worked with Mater Health Services North Queensland on the Stage 1 redevelopment of the Mater Hospital at Pimlico, Townsville.
Following contract award in April 2018, construction on the project started in July 2018.
The works included:
- A dedicated new entry to the hospital;
- New medical imaging facilities;
- A new day surgery unit; and
- An additional four digital operating theatres in the existing Lothair Street wing.
The new 'Mercy Centre' building was completed in February and facilities opened to the public on 24 March 2020. The refurbishment of the existing Lothair building was completed in September 2020.
Approximately 200 local jobs were created from the project, with 92 percent of sub-contracts awarded to small and medium enterprises employing local workers.
The Stage 1 redevelopment is part of a 10-year master plan by Mater Health Services to enhance health care in the North Queensland region.
