Better Heath Care for Caboolture

Caboolture is set to welcome a new state-of-the-art healthcare facility, with the Caboolture Satellite Hospital on track to open its doors soon.



The Caboolture Satellite Hospital aims to provide a comprehensive range of healthcare services, catering to the growing needs of the Caboolture community. Work is now underway to equip and prepare the multi-million dollar facility for patients. Health Minister, Shannon Fentiman, joined the dedicated workers on-site to mark the end of construction and the beginning of the fit-out phase.


According to the Health Minister, the Caboolture Satellite Hospital is expected to open its doors in August. The facility will have the capacity to accommodate 600 outpatient appointments per week in its consult and treatment rooms, with a team of skilled clinicians from Queensland Health, including mental health specialists and Rapid Access Clinic staff.


Additionally, the hospital will be able to provide care for up to 490 walk-in patients per week.


One of the key features of the Caboolture Satellite Hospital is the Minor Injury and Illness Clinic, which will offer free walk-in care seven days a week from 8 am to 10 pm (with staff available until 11:30 pm). The clinic will care for common conditions such as strains and sprains, broken bones, minor head injuries, infections and rashes, minor eye issues, cuts and burns, toothache, earache, and fever. By offering these services, the clinic aims to alleviate the pressure on busy emergency departments and major hospitals in the area.


In addition to the Minor Injury and Illness Clinic, the Caboolture Satellite Hospital will house various specialised services. These include oral health services, a sleep studies clinic for respiratory-related sleep disorders, medical imaging and diagnostic services, and an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Hub, providing essential services such as screening, health promotion, and health education.


Member for Morayfield, Mark Ryan, welcomed the Caboolture Satellite Hospital, recognising it as a game-changer for the region. With its capacity to accommodate walk-in patients and offer a wide range of healthcare services, the facility is expected to greatly benefit the local community.


Apart from Caboolture, satellite hospitals will also be established in Tugun, Redlands, Eight Mile Plains, Bribie Island, Kallangur, and Ripley.
