Boost for Ipswich economy

Ipswich Hospital Mental Health Unit


The Mental Health Unit at Ipswich Hospital will generate significant stimulus for the Ipswich economy with around 140 jobs to be created and 100% of the project to be delivered by South East Queensland subcontractors. BESIX Watpac will deliver a three-storey 50-bed facility providing a contemporary environment for best practice mental health care and assessment, recovery and rehabilitation services. An enclosed overhead bridge will link the new facility with the hospital for the safe movement of patients, staff and equipment. Extensive communication with the project’s neighbours will ensure works have minimal impact within the local community.
