In June 2019 the Queensland Government announced $6.7 million in funding towards developing a business case for a new Bundaberg Hospital. The new hospital will service Bundaberg and the Wide Bay region.

A significant portion of this funding will be put towards design costs once a preferred option has been chosen. The business case will determine where the new hospital will be located and when and how it can be built.

Building Queensland, in partnership with Queensland Health and Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service, is currently undertaking a detailed business case for a new Bundaberg Hospital. This is due to be complete in the second half of 2020.

The business case will consider options for staged construction in order to make some services available prior to completion of the entire project. The business case will also examine the size and scope of the hospital's clinical services, road and public transport infrastructure, car-parking, and opportunities to locate associated health business nearby.

As part of the business case a new site for the hospital will be located given the site of the current hospital is prone to flooding, has space restraints and inefficient layouts. The new site will need to meet be around 15-20 hectares in size, in an accessible location within 17km of the CBD, have good transport links and strong flood protection.

In August the Queensland Government announced their search for a site for the new hospital. They called for interested landowners to come forward and list their properties for consideration. Once expressions of interest have been received they will be assessed against the selection criteria.

It is expected that a decision about a new site will be made in early 2020.
