Hospital tender documents issued
Friday 2 September 2011
THE $2.03 billion Sunshine Coast University Hospital took another step forward yesterday with the issue of tender documents to the three short-listed bidders.
The public hospital is expected to be delivered as a Public Private Partnership.
The PPP will see Queensland Health enter into a 25-year procurement contract with a private consortium to design, finance, construct and maintain the hospital buildings.
Five Expressions of Interest had been received from the market and these were short-listed to three.
Health Minister Geoff Wilson said these tender documents represented more than two years of detailed planning by clinicians.
“More than 50 user groups were formed to develop the specifications for the project,” Mr Wilson said.
It is understood these short-listed companies have invested between $10 and $20 million into their tender application.
A decision will be made next year.
