The center will provide immediate care for non-life-threatening ailments. Australia is poised to open a satellite hospital on Bribie Island to provide free healthcare services, the seventh of its kind in the Queensland state. The Bribie Island Satellite Hospital Minor Injury and Illness Clinic will offer immediate treatment for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries. The facility will include services such as an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health hub, kidney dialysis, and a day medical care unit, among others.

“This will make the lives of locals so much easier, knowing that help for those scary but non-life-threatening situations is right here on the Island, while also alleviating pressure on busy emergency departments,” Steven Miles, Queensland’s premier, said. Meanwhile, the hospital intends to provide cancer treatment, oral health, and allied health services by early 2025. The mild Injury and Illness Clinic provides walk-in, urgent care for illnesses and injuries that are unlikely to be life-threatening, such as small fractures, simple infections, toothaches, mild burns, and minor head injuries.

The Minor Injury and Illness Clinic will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.
The Bribie Island Satellite Hospital will offer the following services by appointment only:
• Mental health specialized services.
• Outpatient medical services.
• Kidney dialysis.
• Rehabilitation and health services for the elderly.

The Bribie Island Satellite Hospital will have an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Hub that will take referrals and walk-ins.
