In the 2016/17 State Budget, the government announced the redevelopment of the Atherton Hospital as part of the $230 million Advancing Queensland’s Health Infrastructure Program (AQHIP).
The redevelopment of Atherton Hospital will provide a new purpose-built Clinical Services Building, which includes an Emergency Department, Medical Imaging, operating theatres and inpatient ward areas. General refurbishments will take place in the existing building.
To provide the necessary space to construct the new building, the existing Atherton Primary Health Centre will be demolished to allow the construction of the new Clinical Services Building.
A new Community, Allied and Mental Health Building will be constructed on Jack Street to improve facilities for outpatients community, allied health and mental health services.
The project team presented the Detailed Business Case to the Department of Health in June 2017 and received approval to proceed to the next phase, Detailed Design.

REGISTRATION OF INTEREST (ROI) OPPORTUNITIES
Local industry interested in supplying to the project as sub-contractors and suppliers are encouraged to register their interest against the 'general expression of interest' located in the Work Packages section below.
Suppliers should note:
- This is an initial, general registration of interest to supply to the project.
- They must have an ICN Gateway company profile which is complete, up-to-date and accurate in order to register their interest. Information on how to register your business on ICN Gateway is provided below.
- Registrations of interest may be provided to contractors invited to tender on the project and included in a project-specific supply market analysis being prepared by the ICN.
Queensland Health has engaged the Industry Capability Network (ICN) to undertake a supply market analysis and prepare a report which provides market intelligence about local small-to-medium enterprise (SME) capability to supply to the project.
It is important that businesses registering their interest are aware that their registration does not guarantee that they will progress further in any procurement processes. Only businesses that can demonstrate capability and capacity in accordance with project requirements will be considered by the projects managing contractor.
Further information regarding project progression will be communicated on our ICN Gateway project page as it becomes available.
