Brisbane-based private developers Keylin and Kinstone Group are moving well ahead of the state government to deliver the first stage of their proposed $1.5 billion health precinct at Coomera in the Gold Coast’s burgeoning northern suburbs.

The companies have lodged revised development plans with the council for the four-level Foxwell Day Hospital, which will deliver for the first time to the region combined offering of ambulance bays, a GP clinic, allied health, day surgery theatres, specialist suites, medical offices, pathology and pharmacy services.

The move comes well ahead of the Queensland Government's plans to deliver a new public hospital to Coomera, which has been the Gold Coast's epicenter of population growth for the past decade.

The project is being developed on about 1ha of a 47.7ha site along Foxwell Road at Coomera, opposite the existing Coomera Town Centre and bordering Dreamworld to the south.

While the development partners have shortlisted preferred operators for the day hospital, they are not expected to make an announcement until the development application has been approved.

The material change of use application lodged with the Gold Coast City Council this week notes that, as a day hospital, there will be no overnight stays at the facility in line with the current permitted land use for the site. The partners had previously announced a 400-bed private hospital for the site.

Keylin and Kinstone, which have joined forces to deliver residential developments on the Gold Coast over the past few years, acquired the Coomera site – originally owned by Dreamworld - from the Queensland Investment Corporation in 2021 for more than $30 million.

They have subsequently developed fast-food outlets on part of the site, including McDonalds and KFC, although their Foxwell Coomera master plan also includes further commercial development.

“We are adopting a staged approach for the delivery of Foxwell Coomera’s Health and Wellness Precinct that takes into account the 404-bed Coomera public hospital announced by the Queensland Government in last year’s budget,” Keylin managing director Louis Cheung says.

The Queensland Government announced last year that it planned to deliver the new $1.3 billion Coomera hospital, located on a vacant site at George Alexander Way near the Coomera railway station, by the second half of 2027, providing the fast-growing region with an emergency department, treatment spaces and a satellite medical imaging department.

The combined health precincts will service an expected population of about 160,000 people, or more than a quarter of the Gold Coast’s population.

“Over the past year, our development team has delivered significant infrastructure to the future health precinct, including new road networks and infrastructure connections,” Cheung says.

Kinstone general manager Tommy Hung says plans for the precinct include ‘family-focused retail and recreation services with a strong focus on lifestyle and wellbeing’.

“The Foxwell Day Hospital is the centrepiece of the health and wellness component of the Coomera Town Centre, with future stages to include campus-style allied health care, outpatient facilities, rehabilitation, and wellness services,” Hung says.

“The scale of Foxwell Coomera, and its proximity to public transport and the M1, presents an opportunity to explore how health and wellness can coexist with future-focused commercial and residential spaces.

“We look forward to Queensland Health breaking ground on the nearby public hospital.”

Keylin and Kinstone are the companies behind the $650 million Serenity 4212 master planned community at Helensvale. The waterfront development, which borders Hope Island and was originally known as Serenity Cove, was acquired by Keylin from Malaysian development giants Sime Darby and Brunsfield in 2019 for $50 million.
