Gladstone Hospital serves a regional city of 60,000 and surrounding towns including Biloela. The maternity unit delivers about 600 babies a year.
It is the only hospital available to expectant mothers after the Labor State Government bought the former Mater Hospital and incorporated it into the public facility in 2020.
This petition draws attention to the decline in the availability of maternity and other medical services at the Gladstone Hospital and the negative impact this has had on the wider Gladstone region and surrounding areas.
This petition calls on the Premier the Hon Annastacia Palaszczuk and Health Minister the Hon Yvette D’Ath to provide adequate funding, resources, and qualified medical professionals to the Gladstone Hospital to deliver maternity and other medical services.
