Destravis was engaged by Central West Hospital and Health Service (CWHHS) to determine and assess the options for the future of Blackall Hospital.
The existing facility was constructed almost 80 years ago and is aged and outdated.
Destravis conducted comprehensive investigations, including site assessment and stakeholder consultation to assess a range of options. The final short list of options included:
A new facility on existing land adjacent to existing hospital
A new facility in new location
Refurbishment of existing facility.
These options were reviewed as part of a Detailed Options Analysis and investigated in line with the requirements of the Investment Management Framework (IMF) and the Queensland Government Project Assurance Framework (PAF).
A final recommendation for a Preferred Option was developed following significant consultation with various Queensland Health departments, market sounding of potential Contractors, consultation with users, impacted parties and the community of Blackall.
The Detailed Business Case and supporting apparatus received Board Endorsement and was submitted to the IRC for approval. The IRC granted approval to proceed through Gate 2 and commence activities for procurement.
