Moranbah Hospital redevelopment commitment welcomed by QRC

16 September 2020

The Queensland Resources Council welcomes the State Government commitment of $500,000 for a business case for the redevelopment of the Moranbah Hospital.

QRC Chief Executive Ian Macfarlane said the State Government should now provide a timeframe on the progression from business case to hospital redevelopment.

“Moranbah is a major centre for the Queensland resources sector and I commend the Isaac Regional Council and CFMMEU for their joint advocacy for the hospital redevelopment with the QRC,” Mr Macfarlane said.

I would also particularly like to acknowledge the strong advocacy of the late  Tim Mulherin who was determined to see this redevelopment take place.

“It is an issue the QRC has also raised directly with the Queensland Government. We welcome the initial commitment for a business case and look forward to the release of a comprehensive plan for the redevelopment of the hospital.”
