New Roma Hospital seeks Maranoa contractors

EXPRESSIONS of interest have been called for the relocation of furnishings, equipment and services from the old Roma Hospital into the new Roma Hospital.

A South West Hospital and Health Service spokesperson said the Queensland Government’s Charter for Local Content sought to maximise local industry participation including encouraging contractors to maximise the use of local businesses.

“This will be a consideration for this tender process,” the spokesperson said.

“Local businesses with the capacity to undertake the work are encouraged to express their interest.

“Once the expressions of interest have been received, they will be reviewed and a successful applicant selected.”

The first stage of the removals contract is expected to start in late July with the relocation of building and maintenance, stores and laundry services to the services building of the new Roma Hospital.

This will allow the buildings currently occupied by building and maintenance, stores and laundry to be demolished to allow for the start of work on the first stage of the car park construction for the new Roma Hospital.

The new Roma Hospital will include free parking for up to 220 vehicles, including a staff car park.

The relocation of equipment, services and furnishings from the old hospital to the new will then continue progressively until the completion of the relocation by mid-October

Work on the new $112.6 million Roma Hospital is on track and the hospital build is expected to be completed during the second half of the year.
