The project also involves the construction of a new 22-bed acute inpatient unit at Hervey Bay Hospital, as well as the transformation of the current inpatient unit at Maryborough Hospital into a refurbished 10-bed sub-acute specialist older persons unit. Since it opened in 1997, Hervey Bay Hospital has built a reputation for excellence especially in professional education and attracts medical and nursing programs in conjunction with a number of renowned Queensland universities.

Its abundance of natural assets includes the Great Sandy Strait, the World Heritage-listed Fraser Island, the Bay and the wetlands, and it boasts a quality of life that balances work and pleasure. Maryborough is known as the “Heritage City” and is rich in history and culture.
