Earth moves for Canberra's newest public hospital

New-public-hospital

Work will soon begin on the University of Canberra Public Hospital, set to open in 2018.

Brookfield Multiplex has been chosen to design and build the $139 million project which will include capacity for 140 overnight beds and 75 day spaces, as well as convenient underground parking.

The hospital will provide entirely sub-acute services, such as rehabilitation and mental health services and a hydrotherapy pool. It will also be a teaching facility, allowing for valuable practical training and greater teaching and research opportunities between the University of Canberra and ACT Health.

Over time, Canberra’s newest and third public hospital is expected to support and lighten the load of Calvary and Canberra Hospitals.
