The Hospital

The Caboolture Hospital is a 265 bed facility providing obstetrics and gynaecology, emergency medicine, general surgery, general medicine, day surgery, pathology, gastroenterology, paediatrics, medical imaging, pharmacy and mental health services to the community.  Allied health services available from the Hospital include physiotherapy, dietetics, social work, occupational therapy and speech pathology.   Outreach services include Caboolture Child and Young People's Mental Health and Caboolture Adult mental health services

More than 56,000 patients visit the ED a year including over 11,000 paediatric cases. Around 11,000 patients are admitted to the hospital from the Emergency Department annually and around 8,000 patients are admitted to the Emergency Short Stay Unit.

Caboolture Hospital is undergoing extensive investment – the redevelopment will see the addition of a five storey Clinical Services Building supporting 130 new beds.

The Location

Caboolture is a thriving township situated on the northern edge of Greater Brisbane. Just 45 minutes from downtown Brisbane, it is also the gateway to the Sunshine Coast with easy access to both via road and rail networks.

It is diverse in scenic attractions from beautiful white sandy beaches and scenic hinterland drives to Bribie Island, the state’s only bridge-linked island. Caboolture offers all the benefits of an urban, modern city lifestyle with the charm of country living.   You have the choice of living in suburbs, with many new estates built, or the wide spaces of an acreage property.

Caboolture is well known for skydiving and gliding at the town's main airfield. The nearby Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology houses a priceless collection of antiques and fine art from around the world with treasures spanning 250,000 years of history. Memories of a more recent bygone era will be rekindled with a visit to Caboolture's Historical Village with its collection of restored buildings.

Yet few attractions rival the splendour of Pumicestone Passage and the internationally recognised marine sanctuary off Bribie Island. It's home to dolphins, dugongs, turtles and more than 350 species of birdlife. An easy 20 minutes from Caboolture, Bribie Island is linked by bridge and is a popular tourist destination for its excellent fishing, surf beaches, National Parks and reserves.
