The Sunshine Hospital Emergency Department redevelopment is now open.

The $34.9 million expansion has doubled the hospital's current capacity adding 55 new treatment spaces - including nine dedicated for children and a purpose-built paediatric triage for families.

In addition, the redevelopment has delivered a new medical imaging suite, expanded administration facilities and upgraded staff amenities.

Refurbishments at the existing emergency department are now underway and will deliver an additional 10 beds, a new resuscitation area and a Behavioural Assessment Unit.

Once complete the upgraded emergency department will be able to treat an extra 59,000 patients each year. These works are expected to be completed by the middle of the year.
