GP Superclinic on track

CONSTRUCTION of Bundaberg's GP Superclinic has reached the halfway mark, with the centre on track for completion in October.

CEO Harley Stanton said although rain had hindered the project early on, it was still expected to be finished in about four months.

“We were delayed for eight days, but the builder figures we could handle delays of up to two weeks,” Dr Stanton said.

“We are just hoping the weather stays nice.”

Dr Stanton said construction on the clinic, which began in February, had gone smoothly.

“We have reached the mid-point of construction,” he said.

“They've started framing on the second floor and they started the brickwork on the main building (on Monday).”

The clinic will have the capacity for eight doctors and Dr Stanton said he expected they would start out with three or four and build up over time.

“We'll start advertising for people in terms of work and opportunities for tenancy in the next few months,” he said.

“I think it will be a very significant addition to the health care facilities in Bundaberg.”
