Toowoomba Hospital Redevelopment
MAAP has worked with Conrad Gargett Architects and Building Queensland on the detailed business case for the new Toowoomba Hospital which aims to bring world-class, innovative health care to Toowoomba and the Darling Downs region through the redevelopment of services at the Baillie Henderson Hospital campus.
The new hospital will deliver new and expanded health care services to the region to cater for its growing population, provide access to the latest medical technologies and create an environment that promotes health and wellbeing and set the hospital up for a sustainable future.
The masterplanned campus places the redeveloped hospital at its core, surrounded by interconnected heritage buildings, a range of multi-disciplinary health services, and facilities for research, education, commerce and community recreation. The campus will be welcoming and accessible to all, with open, natural, tree-lined spaces, creating an environment that promotes health and wellbeing.
MAAP developed proposals for reconfiguring mental health services in a compact building footprint accommodating 160 beds, taking advantage of the mature campus setting to deliver a patient environment that benefits from the site's existing trees and long views to the surrounding landscape. Staging has been a key consideration to ensure the project can be delivered without interfering with the redevelopment of the main hospital.
