Pine Rivers Private Hospital Feasibility Study & Business Case
Regional Development Australia Moreton Bay has successfully secured funding from the Commonwealth Government Department of Health to fund the development of a Pine Rivers Private Hospital Feasibility Study & Business Case.
The Moreton Bay Region is now the third largest local government area in Australia based on population behind Brisbane City Council and Gold Coast City Council. By 2031 the region’s population is estimated to grow to over 585,000. The region’s population is greater than the Northern Territory and by 2031 will be larger than Tasmania!
This population growth is driving significant investment in infrastructure, including the $1.1bn Moreton Bay Rail Link, alongside unparrelled investment in new housing and community infrastructure, and is also attracting considerable new business investment, including by Costco and Ikea.
It is this significant growth in population, which is creating increasing demand for a wider range of choices in the provision of medical and health related facilities across the region. The provision of a Private Hospital in the Pine Rivers area of the Moreton Bay region would significantly assist meeting the demands and aspirations of the region’s growing population.
The overarching objective is to produce a robust business model to secure a private hospital investment in to the Pine Rivers area of Moreton Bay Regional Council, and will consist of:
1. Feasibility Study
2. Business Case.
