Gold Coast University Hospital

Gold Coast Health provides care in hospital and community settings across the expanding Gold Coast region.  Located in the lower south-east corner of the state of Queensland, the Gold Coast has traditionally been one of Australia's leading leisure destinations.  It is increasingly a place people are choosing to call home.
Services include all major adult specialties as well as paediatrics.  Chronic disease management is a key focus in our hospital and community care environments.  Gold Coast Health is working closely with health partners such as general practitioners to develop seamless support networks for patients and their families.
Gold Coast Health is now training more medical students than any other hospital in Australia. We continue to work with education providers such as Griffith University and Bond University on the Gold Coast, and University of Queensland  in Brisbane to train a future health workforce.  Training for all health professions including medical, nursing, allied and other support services are undertaken at Gold Coast.
The Gold Coast Hospital Foundation, based at the Gold Coast hospital are dedicated to fundraising to support Gold Coast Health research and education activities.

Located on the corner of Parklands Drive and Olsen Avenue in Southport, GCUH will be one of Queensland's largest clinical teaching and research facilities. It will provide specialised health services that meet the needs of patients as well as the learning requirements of our future clinicians.
