The Ormeau Ambulance Station has officially opened in Queensland, Australia to provide emergency medical services to the community around the northern Gold Coast area.

This new ambulance station will operate 24/7 with 17 staff members, including paramedics.

Costing A$6.5m ($4.2m), the station was built to meet the growing demand for ambulance services and the needs of the increasing population in Ormeau and nearby areas.

This facility complements nearby stations in Pimpama, Coomera, and Beenleigh and was strategically located for quick access to major traffic routes.

The Palaszczuk Government has been investing in healthcare services, hiring more paramedics since 2015 to ensure fast response times.

According to a media statement, the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) is the busiest in the country, responding to 1.2 million incidents annually, and remains free.

The new Ormeau Ambulance Station ensures quick access to emergency care for the growing community and helps meet response time targets.

Minister for Housing Meaghan Scanlon said: “The Gold Coast is one of Queensland’s fastest growing areas, and our government is making the necessary investments to keep pace with that growth.

“This is one of many health projects the Palaszczuk Government has committed on the Gold Coast thanks to the A$2.1bn health investment announced in the Budget.

“This is more than a 100% increase in health funding for the Gold Coast since 2015.

“It joins the Gold Coast university Hospital sub-acute expansion, Gold Coast Secure Mental Health Rehabilitation Unit with 40 beds, Tugun Satellite Hospital and expansions to Robina Hospital that will deliver 134 new beds.”
