Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH)

The much anticipated hospital at Kawana will open on Tuesday 21 March, and it will be accepting Emergency Ward patients in the following week. CCPS staff will be shown the hospital’s facilities on 13 March, very kindly arranged by the hospital’s Wishlist Foundation. Our Teachers need to know about this facility as they are currently working with the future employees and specialists of this hospital. It is important for CCPS to fully understand the significance of this wonderful healthcare resource for The Coast. SCUH already employs some of our parents, particularly many who have moved to the region for this employment.
