New Moranbah Hospital

This is another great example of our coal royalties being reinvested to support local communities.

Moranbah’s new hospital has been fast-tracked thanks to our progressive royalties system that makes sure Queenslanders share in the benefits of higher coal prices.

It will create more than 100 jobs during construction and will provide the Isaac region with Isaac region with increased emergency department spaces, a CT scanner in an expanded imaging department, and additional Allied health, child health, antenatal and postnatal care services and mental health services.

I had the privilege of turning the first sod on the project with Treasurer Cameron Dick and Mayor Anne Baker recently and I look forward to seeing it completed in 2024.
