Business case for Health and Medical Investment in the City of Logan
Logan City Council commissioned research to identify the health and medical development and investment opportunities in the Logan Local Government Area. Based on evidence driven data, the research completed provides an understanding of the current and future health demand to identify gaps (existing and future) and explores main investment drivers.
Key localities for investment in health care services, including a private hospital or day hospital, include –
Meadowbrook – Logan’s health, knowledge and wellbeing precinct, centred on the Logan Hospital, Griffith University Logan campus and TAFE Queensland Loganlea campus, with multiple sites identified for hospital and health care services.
Opportunities are developing in key growth areas, including Yarrabilba and Flagstone.
Other key centres across the city for integrated healthcare services.
Investment in a range of healthcare facilities in the City of Logan represents a viable opportunity, due to –
On-going significant shortage in acute hospital care, despite the expansion of the Logan Hospital.
Significant flow of existing patients from Logan to nearby hospitals outside of Logan, representing existing demand which can be captured.
Demographic characteristics and socio-economic factors indicate potential for a private hospital.
Significant gaps in specialist outpatient care and medical imaging services.
Targeted gaps in allied health services.
