The first sod has been turned by Health Minister Yvette D’Ath on the new satellite hospital in Kallangur.
The hospital will include a minor injury and illness clinic to take pressure off busy emergency departments.
Additional services at Kallangur Satellite Hospital could include medical imaging, outpatient services and mental health support.
Minister D’Ath, the State Member for Redcliffe, said construction would soon start with a concrete pour scheduled for later this week.
