Mackay Hospital has just recently undergone an AUD$408million investment project, expanding services significantly and increasing the bed capacity from 180 to 236 beds currently. The re-development includes a new emergency department, outpatients department, delivery suites and special care nursery, intensive care unit and coronary care unit, day surgery and operating theatre suite, inpatient surgical and medical wards, renal support services, dental, allied health and mental health facilities.

It is a digital hospital, equipped with leading edge technology to assist staff to provide the highest level of care and comfort to our patients. It is the first regional hospital in Queensland to have a complete, integrated, electronic medical record. In addition, a $1.5 million MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scanner allows for more medical imaging on-site.

The hospital provides services to a population of approximately 160,000 with 40,000 ED admissions annually. It is the main base hospital for the region, supporting 7 smaller facilities. It provides specialist services in obstetrics, gynaecology, paediatrics, orthopaedics, psychiatry, urology and oncology and many other speciality areas.  New services implemented in 2017 included ENT and a Step Up Step Down mental health service.
