Nowra Private Hospital is an 75-bed acute care facility, which has provided services to the resident population (100,000 plus) of the NSW South Coast for over 35 years. The hospital is located 130km south of Sydney and 10km from the coast and beaches for which the South Coast of NSW is renowned. Nowra Private Hospital is a significant provider of hospital services in the district, servicing not only a long coastal strip of coastal settlement, but also a significant tourist population.
The hospital provides a wide range of surgical specialties including general / laparoscopic surgery, bariatric surgery, ENT, urology, gynaecology, plastic and cosmetic surgery, gastroenterology, dental, ophthalmology and orthopaedics. Twenty four hour pathology and radiology services are also provided.
The hospital has three well equipped operating theatres, day surgery and high dependency units, a hydrotherapy pool, two gymnasiums and dedicated allied health team.
The hospital also provides medical and rehabilitation services. With the population demographic experiencing continued growth in the 50+ age group, orthopaedic patients contribute significantly to the rehabilitation case mix. Medical reconditioning programs contribute to continued independence for older residents of the region.
Hospital Medical Officers provide twenty four hour cover to the hospital, and support the Visiting Medical Officers.
Nowra has a campus for the Wollongong University, and in 2007 accepted its first intake into the Shoalhaven campus of the Wollongong School of Rural Medicine. This program is strongly supported by the medical community and both Nowra Private Hospital, and the Shoalhaven public sector.
The Shoalhaven region is a dynamic regional area offering a choice of lifestyles in settings from the coast to the semi-rural countryside. The region is achieving recognition for its wines, with viticulture a vibrant growth industry.
Population growth is above the state average, and the age demographic is driving demand for most of the hospital’s surgical specialties.
The Medical community provides active support to new members and the Shoalhaven Medical Association also ensures welcoming support and assistance.
