Redcliffe Hospital parking: what you need to know

Posted: 11am 17 Sep 2020

Redcliffe Hospital’s $36 million multi-storey carpark will open to vehicles at 6am on September 21.

Fees for the 600-vehicle carpark are the lowest in the Metro North Hospital and Health Services district, capped at $13 per day.

During the first two weeks, there will be no charge to park there. Fees will apply from October 6.

State Member for Redcliffe Yvette D’Ath says this is the first time a hospital car park will be owned and operated by Metro North HHS and a hospital.

“We know the doctors, nurses and hospital staff at the Redcliffe Hospital do amazing work and I am pleased that paid parking for staff will be lower than it is at other hospitals,” Ms D’Ath says.

What it will cost you

“The majority of patients and visitors stay at the hospital for two hours or less, meaning most car park users won’t pay more than $5 each visit,” she says.

“I promised that the carparking fees would be no more than $15 and I am pleased that they will be capped at $13 per day, and fees frozen until December 2023.”

Concessions will be available for eligible patients and carers, and there will be a cheaper rate for staff.

Visit metronorth.health.qld.gov.au for details or to apply for concessions.
