How YOU can do business with SCUH

What do Sunshine Toyota, Good Bean and Alltech Industrial Abseilers have in common?

These three local businesses are reaping the rewards of the new and ongoing opportunities that have been created by the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

As a local business owner have you thought about the opportunities that may exist for your business with the new hospital?

A project of the size of SCUH creates opportunities for local businesses – many of which are outside of the provision of health services. Come along to this free event to connect with current opportunities and find out what exiting new opportunities may await you:

  • Facilities Manager Spotless will explain what the ongoing opportunities are, how to connect with them – and what opportunities may exist with Spotless Group beyond the hospital.
  • WishlistConnect will talk about how to connect with the new pool of 7,500 health staff who are new to the Coast who are keen to hear from local businesses.
  • Local business Alltech Industrial Abseilers will talk about what winning a contract with Spotless has meant for their business in terms of revenue growth and business expansion opportunities.
  • You will also have an opportunity to have your questions answered by Spotless, Wishlist, and Alltech Industrial Abseilers in the Q&A session, and during post-event networking.
