The Queensland Health Department (QH) is undertaking the construction of public and private hospitals in Kawana, Queensland, Australia.

The project involves the construction of two hospitals, a 738-bed public hospital and a 200-bed private hospital on 20ha area. The public hospital will initially construct with a capacity of 450 beds, which will later be increased to 738 beds.

It includes the construction of an academic and research center, car parking providing 3,000 spaces, and a Kawana Health Innovation Park (private and non-government facilities to support the hospital such as child minding, pharmacies and allied health services).

It also includes the construction of cancer care center, academic and research center, with departments such as the intensive care unit (ICU), coronary care unit, and extended day surgery unit all housed together and other related facilities.

The project is being developed through a public private partnership (PPP), for the duration of the 25 years.

In November 2010, Ramsay Health Care (RHC) has submitted a bid to design, build, finance, operate and transfer (DBFOT) the 200-bed private hospital project.
