TOOWOOMBA Hospital chef Paul Spencer won't know himself when he has a gleaming new kitchen to prepare food in.  

The hospital's current kitchen is showing its age a bit and Member for Toowoomba North Toowoomba Trevor Watts said it was overdue for an upgrade.  

Mr Spencer couldn't agree more and can't wait to whip up his healthy culinary delights in the refurbished space.  

Minister Watts said that the Toowoomba Hospital's kitchen is 60-years-old and produces 1000 meals a day for patients.   

"It is necessary, it has been overdue for an upgrade," he said.   

"I think it will make a big difference."  

Chair of the Darling Downs Hospital and Heath Board Mike Horan said the renovations will ensure jobs.   

"It's the principle and philosophy of the board to ensure job security to staff," he said.   

"A brand new kitchen is good news for staff as well as our patients."  

The $10 million kitchen upgrade will begin next year and is due for completion in 2015.
