Varsity Lakes Day Hospital: Announcement

Varsity Lakes Day Hospital

I am writing to advise you that Gold Coast Health is taking over a lease on the former Gold Coast Surgical Hospital at Varsity Lakes to deliver more efficient public elective surgery to the Gold Coast community.The purpose-built surgical facility, located on Lake St near Bond University, will be renamed Varsity Lakes Day Hospital and is expected to welcome its first surgical patients on 1 November.

At full capacity, our clinicians expect to perform 15,000 routine surgeries each year including gastroenterology, gynaecology, orthopaedics, plastics and ophthalmology. This includes an additional 3000 endoscopies every year.

Gold Coast Health already sees 100 per cent of elective surgery patients within the clinically recommended timeframe, and this new facility will allow us to maintain that excellent track record while freeing up emergency capacity at the in-demand Gold Coast University Hospital.

More information is available on our website and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me at goldcoasthealth@health.qld.gov.au.

Regards

Ron Calvert - Chief Executive

Gold Coast Health
