Work has commenced on the new $30 million Springwood Health Hub, following a sod turning ceremony this week hosted by developer Rogerscorp, with attendance including project builder Niclin, City of Logan Mayor Darren Power, Deputy Mayor Jon Raven, and Division 1 Councillor Lisa Bradley.
The development is now on its way to making a difference throughout the Logan region by providing patient-centred care within the 7 storey state of the art, purpose-built health facility.
Rogerscorp’s Director, Simon Rogers said “The decision for Rogerscorp to embark on this project was driven by demand and data. With over 74% of residents needing to leave Logan for their health care needs.”
“Easily accessible off the M1, the site sits proud and visible. We worked with an award-winning architect to ensure we could deliver a prestigious building that people want to work from and visit.”
“We are in discussion with many tenants including IVF, cancer care and allied health operators, and already have commitment from a twin theatre gastro centre who will occupy the majority of the top floor.”
“In addition we have commitments from iMed Radiology, incorporating an MRI machine, as well as Myhealth GP Clinic.”
“We look forward to working alongside our tenants in delivering a brilliant space for them to operate from, and assisting where we can to ensure their business is a great success.”
Mr Rogers also praised the relationship with Council and the development application process.
“Logan City Council have been tremendous to work with throughout the planning and development approval process, and it is great to see such a pro-active council that is certainly stimulating business interest, and working hard to showcase the great benefits that Logan has to offer.” he said.
City of Logan Mayor, Darren Power said “Rogerscorp’s Springwood Health Hub would be a game changer for health facilities in the city.”
“Our city is experiencing growth like never before. With this growth comes the need for more health services.”
“Springwood Health Hub is not only an investment in our city but the health of our residents.”
“This state-of-art health hub will mean City of Logan residents have access to a range of medical services here in their own backyard,” Mayor Power said.
Niclin Group’s Managing Director, Nick Cave said “The project will create up to 1500 direct and indirect jobs.”
“We look forward to being a part of a project that will further strengthen the health services for the Logan area.” he said.
The Springwood Health Hub joins an increasing list of health and medical investments in the city, which include:
- $20m Southwest Medical Centre in Meadowbrook
- Australian Unity future health precinct in Meadowbrook
- Qscan in Meadowbrook
- Infinite Vision in Loganholme
- Flagstone Medical Centre and Skin Clinic
- $460 million Logan Hospital Expansion
Logan City Council and Logan Office of Economic Development commissioned research in 2018 to identify the health and medical development and investment opportunities in the Logan Local Government Area. Based on evidence driven data, the research completed provided an understanding of the current and future health demand to identify gaps (existing and future) and direct investment attraction activities using key investment drivers. Springwood was identified as a potential location for health & medical investment, and the Springwood Health Hub will be a welcome addition to the area serving as a catalyst for jobs and providing easier access to specialty health and well-being facilities.
