Greenslopes Private Hospital
Part of Ramsay Health Care

Cardiac Centre - Brisbane South

Greenslopes Private Hospital offers a comprehensive one-stop-shop service for cardiac care. Our cardiovascular suites undertake more elective and urgent cases than any other private hospital on Brisbane's southside. 

Our skilled cardiac surgeons treat cardiovascular and cardiothoracic conditions using the latest technology and techniques available, setting key new healthcare benchmarks.

Greenslopes Private Hospital is one of Australia’s highest volume centres for the “Watchman” - a small implantable device designed to prevent stroke in patients with Atrial Fibrillation. The breakthrough procedure was performed for the first time in Queensland at Greenslopes in 2010, and has helped prevent strokes in thousands of people.

In another Queensland first, Greenslopes Private Hospital began offering the Carto 3D mapping and navigation system in 2005. It guides precise locations of catheter positions in patients with heart rhythm problems.

Our cardiologists also offer patients new subcutaneous defibrillators, which involve a less invasive procedure. The S-ICD is implanted just below the skin, while the lead is implanted along the breastbone (rather than through a vein and into the heart). This leaves the heart and blood vessels intact, and is performed on patients at risk of a sudden cardiac arrest.

A new Cardiac Catheter Lab contains the latest technology offering improved vision and reduced radiation. It allows surgeons to acquire quality images during minimally invasive procedures at significantly reduced levels of X-ray radiation doses.

Greenslopes Private Hospital has 18 years’ experience in cardiac surgery, and provides patients with direct access via our 24/7 Emergency Centre to our Cardiovascular Suites. These suites allow for the complete management of all acute cardiac emergencies including heart attacks, angioplasty and pacemaker procedures, rhythm monitoring and full haemodynamic pressure monitoring.

Our 29 bed Coronary Care Unit offers private rooms for patients to recover in a comfortable, modern and peaceful environment, under the care of a dedicated team of specialist doctors and nurses.

Our Healthy Hearts Cardiac Rehabilitation Program provides effective programs individually tailored for people who have heart disease, have had a cardiac procedure, have heart failure, or experience risk factors associated with heart disease.

The aim of the program is to help people return to their previous lifestyles and activities through exercise and education.

Healthy Hearts provides an education and exercise program in a safe and monitored environment, and assists you to set and achieve meaningful goals.

How to be referred to the program:

  • Post Discharge (Phase 2) includes education, supervised exercise and lifestyle activities
