John Holland to help bring the new $1.3b Toowoomba Hospital to life

John Holland is proudly partnering with the Queensland Government to lead the design stage of the new $1.3 billion Toowoomba Hospital – a key pillar of the Queensland Health and Hospitals Plan.

The project will deliver new hospital facilities on the 75-hectare Baillie Henderson Hospital campus, adding a further 118 beds to the existing capacity of Toowoomba Base Hospital.

The new state-of-the-art Toowoomba Hospital will also deliver expanded healthcare services to the Darling Downs region to cater to its growing population and reduce the need for people to travel outside the region for specialist care.

In a major boost to the local economy, the new hospital is expected to create more than 3,100 jobs during construction.

John Holland CEO, Joe Barr, said the project was another strong endorsement of the team’s health building capabilities. 

“We have a trusted partnership with the Queensland Government to deliver the facilities that Queenslanders depend on.

“The new Toowoomba Hospital adds to an incredible pipeline of projects, including the Logan and PA hospital expansions, and the Southern Queensland Correctional Centre near Gatton.”

Executive General Manager – Building, David Lehmann, said John Holland was well placed to build a lasting legacy in Queensland healthcare.

“Projects like these transform lives. The new Toowoomba Hospital will deliver the state-of-the-art healthcare facilities and services that these growing communities deserve.

“During construction, this project will create thousands of jobs while also unlocking opportunities for local training and skills development, Indigenous participation and social procurement.”

Construction of the new Toowoomba Hospital is expected to be completed in 2027.
