Progress is underway on a ten-storey private hospital with state-of-the-art medical and teaching facilities in Maroochydore City Centre.

Anchored by key tenants the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) and global orthopaedic leader Medacta, the Maroochy Private Hospital will provide a comprehensive health ecosystem with a focus on musculoskeletal conditions.

The $100 million hospital which is being jointly delivered by Barwon Investment Partners and Sunshine Coast Specialist Hospital Development will service Maroochydore and the wider Sunshine Coast region, ensuring more residents have access to world-class medical services without the need to travel far from home.

Offering surgical specialties, ancillary health care services, as well as pain management, sports medicine and allied health, the hospital will also serve as a hub for education, research, and clinical care.

UniSC Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Helen Bartlett said the university was excited to partner with industry on a project that would deliver better health outcomes for the community, while building expert health knowledge and graduate skills.

She said the hospital would provide opportunities for students and researchers in Medical Science, Occupational Therapy, Health Science and Nursing, and other allied health programs.

“Students and researchers here will be working at the forefront of medical innovation and knowledge alongside industry experts, and together we can drive world-class healthcare delivery and innovations here on the Sunshine Coast,” Professor Bartlett said.

Tom Patrick, Head of Healthcare Property at Barwon said, “Barwon is thrilled that construction is now underway. We are honoured to be an integral part of this project, one that will serve the healthcare needs of Maroochydore residents and neighboring communities, while also fostering local job opportunities through the creation of numerous new roles. Furthermore, this venture paves the way for future advancements in medical science, positioning Maroochy Private Hospital as a hub for cutting-edge healthcare innovations.”

Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson said the Maroochydore City Centre was on the brink of a transformative development, with construction starting on the first medical and teaching facilities in the city.

“This exciting development represents a major step forward in positioning Maroochydore City Centre as a vibrant and progressive destination,” Mayor Jamieson said.

“The introduction of medical and teaching facilities will enhance the local community’s access to essential healthcare services and provide valuable educational opportunities for aspiring medical professionals.”

Located on Mundoo Boulevard, the private hospital is the latest construction project underway in a rapidly expanding Maroochydore City Centre.

Amanda Yeates, CEO of SunCentral which was established to oversee delivery of Australia’s largest greenfield CBD, said the combination of research, development and teaching at the hospital would help foster greater innovation and a new generation of local healthcare leaders.

“The addition of Maroochy Private Hospital marks another important step in the continued diversification of the economic base in the Maroochydore City Centre, which is rapidly undergoing transformation as we build a sustainable and vibrant urban landscape for generations to come,” Amanda Yeates said.

Construction on the hospital is due for completion by the end of 2025. Initial works will focus on delivery of key service and roads infrastructure.
