New Specialist Centre at Greenslopes Private Hospital
Dec 15, 2018
An array of new specialists and surgeons will soon be based out of Greenslopes Private Hospital when an additional multi-storey building opens its doors in the lead-up to Christmas.
The Nicholson Street Specialist Centre contains 30 additional consulting suites and two levels of parking.
All but three of the strata-titled rooms have been purchased by practitioners, with the remainder leased by the hospital. Chris Went, CEO of Greenslopes Private Hospital, said one of the floors is dedicated to mothers and babies.
“Specialties on this floor include foetal medicine, genetic testing and counselling, renal medicine plus our wonderful obstetric and paediatric teams,” she said.
The other two floors are occupied by physicians from a range of disciplines, including orthopaedics, colorectal, renal and plastic surgery.
Ms Went said housing specialists on site was better for patients because it eliminated the travel time between their rooms and the hospital.
“It makes it easier for them to be able to present to the hospital should their patient need them in an emergency situation,” she said.
Ms Went said it also helped the clinicians to feel part of the footprint of the hospital.
“Greenslopes Private Hospital is a popular place for physicians to base themselves because of the junior doctor training program, research facilities, and comprehensive range of disciplines.”
“Our multidisciplinary approach to care ensures there are other specialities available to call on should they need it,” she said.
