A REPORT to be released next month will reveal whether Roma Hospital will be upgraded or rebuilt entirely.
With its main infrastructure built in the 1940s and 1970s, Queensland Health Minister Lawrence Springborg acknowledged the hospital needed an upgrade.
A capital infrastructure planning process is under way and will look at options for new capital or development.
"Once this report is received, a better idea of the costs for a refurbishment or new build at Roma Hospital will be available," Mr Springborg said.
"The options for a new build or refurbishment of Roma Hospital then will need to be considered by the government as part of the normal budgetary prioritisation process."
Roma Hospital's infrastructure and design problems were first brought to light in 2010 when it made a list, along with 11 other hospitals throughout Queensland, for priority works.
"A total of $5.83 million has been spent on Roma Hospital just in the past four years,"Mr Springborg said.
