Project Information

Destravis was engaged by Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Service (TCHHS) to develop a Master Plan for Weipa Hospital Facilities including the Weipa Hospital and the facility still on the former hospital site at Rocky Point.

The New Weipa Hospital was constructed in 2009. The population and demand for health services from residences of Weipa and surrounding communities has continued to grow since then. The development of a Master Plan provided an assessment of the projected future needs for services and associated health infrastructure within Weipa Township over the next 15 years.

The Master Plan provided TCHHS with:

  • An in-depth and broad review of the Weipa Hospital Health Services, including outreach programs
  • A coherent plan and strategy to make informed and planned decisions on future capital works, infrastructure and space allocation needs
  • An innovative and forward thinking vision that meets short, medium and long term requirements for the HHS within the Weipa region, with consideration of current and forecasted needs for 5, 10 and 15 years
  • A high-level, conceptual understanding of the possible staging requirements for complex works in order to help maintain the continued delivery of services
  • Costed, future infrastructure options.

In line with these strategic HHS Project Objectives, a key objective for this Master Plan was to offer solutions which highlight opportunities for TCHHS to partner with other organisations in an effort to deliver capital infrastructure and/or services in a more cost effective manner.
