It also has geriatric and rehabilitation services, elective orthopaedic services and cardiothoracic services, an in-patient psychiatric unit and a 16 bed palliative care unit. In 2007, a major upgrade of the hospital was completed and general medical and general surgical services have been introduced in a newly constructed building. The official opening ceremony was held the next day with the then Queensland Premier Peter Beattie as the chief guest. A brand new state-of-the-art Intensive Care Unit and Emergency Department was also built.

The Prince Charles Hospital is the premier cardiac service for the whole of Queensland the northern New South Wales with services in complex interventional cardiology, structural heart disease, cardiac electrophysiology and adult congenital heart disease. It is the home of one of Australia's most advanced cardiac imaging programs.

It is also involved in conducting the FRACP clinical examinations which are held every year during July/August. There is a weekly teleconference of Echocardiography teaching with participation of a number of hospitals in Queensland.

Famous quotes containing the words hospital and/or prince:

    The church is a sort of hospital for men’s souls, and as full of quackery as the hospital for their bodies. Those who are taken into it live like pensioners in their Retreat or Sailor’s Snug Harbor, where you may see a row of religious cripples sitting outside in sunny weather.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A wholly materialistic city is nothing but a dream incarnate. Venice is the world’s unconscious, a miser’s glittering hoard, guarded by a Beast whose eyes are made of white agate, and by a saint who is really a prince who has just slain a dragon.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)
