Maryborough Patients

St Stephen's Hospital Maryborough has experienced ongoing viability issues for a number of years. This is due to declining patient volumes, relating to many complex issues including the limitations of types and complexity of medical and surgical care that can be provided in Maryborough.


After extensively exploring both sub-acute healthcare and non-healthcare related alternatives, St Stephen’s regrettably has concluded that no viable options have been identified. Therefore acute inpatient services will transition to St Stephen’s Hervey Bay towards late-2014. Read more
