ABOUT US...
Located within the Wyong Shire, Berkeley Vale Private Hospital is the newest private hospital on the Central Coast, being opened in 1990. A member of Ramsay Health Care, the hospital is located approximately one hours drive north from Sydney and south from Newcastle, and is within thirty (30) minutes of both major public hospitals on the Central Coast – Gosford and Wyong Public.

A 50 bed hospital, it was the first private hospital on the Central Coast to establish a comprehensive rehabilitation program, approved by all the health funds, insurance companies, WorkCover and the Department of Veteran Affairs.

Although traditionally an older population, a shift continues to occur to a younger patient case mix. The Wyong shire continues to accommodate the largest cohort of Department of Veteran Affairs’ patients in NSW and continues to be one of the fastest growing areas in New South Wales and Australia.
