1,000 patients already treated
THE Coast’s newest hospital, Tuggerah Lakes Private Hospital, has officially opened in Kanwal directly opposite Wyong Public Hospital.
With more than $31M invested in facilities and equipment, and after more than 18 months of construction, the hospital opened its doors to its first patient back in May and has already treated more than 1000 patients in its first three months of operation.
Tuggerah Lakes Private has attracted high quality specialists and surgeons from across the Coast, Sydney and Newcastle, and includes three operating theatres, day and inpatient beds, specialist consulting rooms, pathology and radiology services, and an on-site café.
Further development is planned as part of a second stage in order to meet demand.
General and laparoscopic surgeon, Dr Simon Ghosh, is one specialist who has welcomed the new development.
“I’ve operated in many hospitals in Australia and I’m so pleased to see a facility of this standard here at the northern end of the Central Coast,” he said. “I’m looking forward to working with such a great team.”
Tuggerah Lakes Private caters for multiple specialties, including Orthopaedics; Ear, Nose and Throat; Gastroenterology; General Surgery; Colorectal; Gynaecology; Urology; Plastic Surgery; Vascular Surgery and Dental.
The new hospital has also created more than 50 jobs, with a huge amount of interest from residents.
Part of the Healthe Care Australia group, Tuggerah Lakes Private complements the range of private surgical, medical, mental health and rehabilitation services on offer further down the Central Coast, at the group’s other established hospitals – Brisbane Waters Private Hospital and Gosford Private Hospital.
Brisbane Waters Private is widely recognised as a surgical, mental health and rehabilitation hospital on the Woy Woy Peninsula.
Its recent $11M redevelopment and the introduction of new surgeons, psychiatrists and rehabilitation specialists has further enhanced its reputation as a world class private hospital facility, providing dedicated services and programs locally.
Meanwhile, Gosford Private Hospital has been recognised as a leading private hospital on the Central Coast for more than 35 years.
Recognised globally for its recent work around improving patients’ experiences, the hospital specialises in hip and knee replacement surgery, neurosurgery and general surgical procedures and is home to the Gosford Private Heart Centre, specialist Endoscopy Centre and the Coast’s only private Maternity Service.
