PATIENTS and visitors now have easier access to Kingaroy Hospital with construction work completed on new car parking spaces, resurfaced roads and new line marking.

The $325,000 project was one of many improvements throughout the Darling Downs Hospital and Health Service funded by the Backlog Maintenance Remediation Program, a $50.6million State Government funding program launched mid-2013.

Kingaroy Hospital director of nursing and facility manager Mark White said there were now four new disabled parking spaces for permit holders, including two near the emergency department, one near the renal unit and one at the front of the hospital.

"There are also two new general car parks near the dental area, newly resurfaced roads to car parking areas and new line marking,” Mr White said.

"These works were the result of consumer feedback about difficulties accessing car parking facilities at Kingaroy Hospital. We understood that patients and visitors needed improved access and more car parking amenities and began exploring options.

"Once funding was secured, the project team worked closely with Kingaroy Hospital and staff to minimise disruptions to patients, visitors and staff during the construction phase, which is now completed.

"We are very pleased to announce the new roads and car parking spaces are now open and available for use, making access to the hospital easier and more convenient for visitors and patients.”
