Queensland firm Hutchinson Builders Pty Ltd has been awarded the tender to construct the new Toowoomba Day Surgery located on the Ballie Henderson Hospital campus.

Darling Downs Health Executive Director Infrastructure Paul Clayton said work would start in the coming months.

“The project will provide additional capacity for our clinical staff to perform day surgery on the Baillie Henderson Hospital campus, which will be home to the new Toowoomba Hospital,” Mr Clayton said.

“Congratulations to the Hutchies team based in Toowoomba on being awarded the tender to complete this catalyst project on the Baillie Henderson campus.

“The new day surgery will see two state of the art operating theatres constructed. It will also include recovery and discharge spaces and waiting rooms for friends and families.”

Chief Executive of Darling Downs Health Annette Scott said the project was just the beginning of the transformation of services across the Health Service.

“This is really the beginning of a five-year period of construction work that will enhance the health services available to the public and I’m looking forward to hearing the positive feedback from the community as they access these facilities,” Ms Scott said

“Darling Downs Health has received $42 million from the Department of Health to deliver this project.

“Construction is expected to commence later this month with the new day surgery to be completed by December 2023, weather permitting.”
