The Redland Campus Redevelopment proposal seeks to significantly expand the capability and capacity of the hospital services to meet the current and forecast service demand of the Bayside community.  

The primary focus of the redevelopment is to establish an intensive care unit, increase clinical capability particularly in relation to medical and surgical services, and integrate services through potential public, private partnerships.

Johnstaff’s role

Johnstaff was engaged by Metro South Hospital and Health Service (MSHHS) to lead the development of the Preliminary Business Case for the Redland Campus Redevelopment based on the Building Queensland Business Case Development Framework. 

We also led the technical health facility planning for the entire redevelopment including the development and documentation of a strategic functional brief, preliminary models of care, functional briefs and schedule of accommodation.

Addressing the issues

Johnstaff worked closely with MSHHS and the Mater to establish the aspirations and master plan for the campus, and facilitated an extensive process to assess options which responded to the projected service need through a staged approach. This provided MSHHS and the Mater not only with a feasible funding solution that addressed service priorities, but one that would also meet critical stakeholder expectations. 

Johnstaff delivered the Preliminary Business Case in close collaboration with MSHHS, Queensland Department of Health and Queensland Government agencies. The Preliminary Business Case was delivered in line with programme, and endorsed through the Queensland Government Investment Assurance Committee.
