Herston Village (Brisbane)
Following the completion of the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit in 1987, the Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland through its fundraising efforts was able to construct the first purpose-built patient accommodation and support centre. Herston Village was opened in 1989 at a cost of $1.4 million.
Since then the 13 units have helped more than 1,700 people with blood cancer, giving families free accommodation near the Royal Brisbane and Women’s hospital. In December 2016 the village closed temporarily for long-awaited renovations. These renovations were made possible thanks to incredible support from the community and a $998,400 grant from the Australian Government’s National Stronger Regions Fund.
The revitalised accommodation village has now re-opened and will be welcoming families from late October 2017. For more information about our accommodation services, please phone 07 3055 8200 or email email@example.com.
