We offer the very best in critical care services with a 16 bed Intensive Care Unit, 29 bed Coronary Care Unit and a FACEM led Emergency Centre attending to close to 20,000 presentations per year.
Greenslopes Private Hospital has been privatised for 22 years and over that time Ramsay Health Care has continued to invest in the facilities and services to ensure continued growth of the hospital campus. We have recently commenced construction of the Nicholson Street Specialist Centre which will include three levels of medical consulting suites and two levels of parking. We are also currently undertaking a refurbishment of the Jessie Vasey Wing to provide additional single room with ensuite accommodation for our patients. We are awating approval from the Brisbane City Council for our master plan for other planned developments for the next 5+ years. These include more than 11 to cater for new and expanded services to meet the demands of our local community.
TEACHING AND TRAINING...
Greenslopes’ commitment to teaching and training spans more than 47 years and offers specialists the opportunity to be involved with teaching students, medical graduates, specialty trainees and post graduate education programs.
Greenslopes is proud to house the University of Queensland Greenslopes Clinical School which has been strategically integrated within the main hospital facilities to create a unique environment within a private hospital. Greenslopes also has affiliations with other universities and tertiary institutions for the undergraduate and post-graduate education of a range of allied health disciplines and nursing.
Greenslopes was one of the first private hospitals in Australia to employ a significant number of junior medical staff. The junior medical staff provide 24-hour on-site medical cover. This enables Greenslopes to offer 24-hour service for acute-care admissions and provide more complex surgery and treatment of a greater variety and complexity of medical conditions. The hospital continues to provide for resident and registrar positions across medical and surgical specialties.
Greenslopes Private Hospital has more than 1000 accredited specialists including some of Queensland’s most well respected surgeons and physicians. The hospital offers a high quality cross consulting environment for our specialists.
Greenslopes is able to undertake complex surgical procedures in its state of the art theatre complex including 18 main operating theatres, 3 cardiovascular suites and 6 GE and minor procedure rooms. GPH has invested in the latest intraoperative CT and navigation system for neuro, spine and trauma surgery. The system is only one of four in Australia and the first for Queensland. GPH and the large theatre complex is well equipped with the latest technology. With the continued growth in surgical services, GPH remains one of the busiest robotic surgery site in Australia since performing the first robotic radical prostatectomy in Queensland back in late 2008. With our expansion of robotic surgery in gynaecology, general surgery, ENT/head and neck as well as the already well-established urology, GPH has invested in a second robot – the latest da Vinci Xi surgical system.
The hospital has a strong reputation and particular expertise in the care of medical patients in general medicine, cardiology, oncology, gastroenterology, rehabilitation, respiratory and all other medical sub-specialty areas.
