About Gold Coast University Hospital

The new $1.76 billion Gold Coast University Hospital (GCUH) has led a major expansion of public health services on the Gold Coast and in 2013, will accept patients for the first time.

Located on the corner of Parklands Drive and Olsen Avenue in Southport, GCUH will be one of Queensland's largest clinical teaching and research facilities. It will provide specialised health services that meet the needs of patients as well as the learning requirements of our future clinicians.

Made up of seven main buildings and a total floor space of around 170,000 square metres, the hospital's design is extremely efficient and will allow expansion to meet future health service needs of the community.
