Mater Private Hospital Townsville is dedicated to improving healthcare services for the community, with current operations contributing more than $190 million in economic activity to the North Queensland region.
As part of the Mater Private Hospital Townsville Master Plan, a new 400-space, multi-storey car park is being constructed at the Pimlico campus. Construction of the car park is well underway with completion expected in mid-2022.
Once complete, the car park will provide onsite, dedicated and undercover parking spaces for patients, staff and visitors. It will also incorporate Indigenous artwork, with a bespoke digital artwork installation to be featured on the external facade.
With an expected $7.6 million in public benefit, the car park will create 12 full time jobs during construction and opportunities for up to 40 apprentices and more than 700 sub-contractors over the life of the project.
Ensuring convenient parking in close proximity to the hospital is an important part of the services Mater offers to patients and their families.
The $19.75m project is supported by a loan from the Federal Government’s Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility and is being developed on the hospital’s Pimlico campus at the corner of Diprose and Lothair Street.
The new car park supports Mater’s commitment to provide healthcare excellence to the North Queensland community using the latest technology and innovation in a contemporary medical facility.
We appreciate and value the support we are receiving from the community as we continue to reinvest in infrastructure and equipment to meet the health needs of the community.
