Construction work on Maleny Soldiers Memorial Hospital in Queensland, Australia, is set to start in late September.

The A$2.8m ($1.8m) hospital upgrade is aimed at improving healthcare in the Maleny area.

During construction, some of the patient ward beds will be temporarily moved to Nambour General Hospital, but the hospital’s emergency department and specialist services will stay open.

Exterior construction will begin in September while interior construction will commence in November.

Minister for Health, Mental Health and Ambulance Services Shannon Fentiman said: “We know that the Maleny region is growing, and these works will ensure the facility and its healthcare workers can continue to deliver the best healthcare possible.

“These works form part of the largest infrastructure expansion programme ever undertaken by a Queensland Government to deliver an investment in health for our communities.
