Due to Thuringowa losing it's only hospital in 2002 when it was incorporated into the new Townsville Hospital that the Queensland Government built, Thuringowa now relies on the 3 hospitals based in Townsville.
Thuringowa does have a number of medical centres and doctor surgery’s within the city and the out lying areas, The largest is the Kirwan Health Campus located on Thuringowa drive, this used to be the Woman and Children’s Hospital and was Thuringowa’s only Hospital.
The old Kirwan Woman And Children Hospital is now the state of the art Kirwan Health Campus and is one of the largest in Queensland. This facility can treat 34 different types of patients and medical conditions. The Thuringowa City Council found that with the increasing number of people moving to the northern beaches area a medial centre was need in that area, so the Bluewater Medical Practice was built, the practice offers a large range of services such as full check ups, family planning, pap smears, pregnancy tests, antenatal care, ECG heart check, spirometry lung test, childhood immunisation, vaccinations, blood tests, minor surgery, acupuncture, hearing tests, small surgical procedures, pharmacy, psychologist, pathologist, physiotherapist, cosmetic injections.
