Private hospital offers surgery to 'relieve load'

While the public health system is suspending elective surgery to expand its intensive care capacity to meet the challenge of the coronavirus, a local private hospital is continuing to offer surgical, rehabilitation and medical services.

Healthe Care Group, which owns Brisbane Waters Private Hospital in Woy Woy as well as Gosford Private and Tuggerah Lakes Private, aimed to relieve patient load, according to its regional manager Mr Matt Kelly.

"We continue to treat privately-insured patients as our priority, but we're also supporting our doctors and public hospital to meet community needs in these unprecedented times," he said.

"We're actively working with the Central Coast Local Health District.

"We're committed to overcoming the challenges of coronavirus.

"Everyone at our three hospitals is actively doing all we can to look after our local community.

"We know it's a challenging time, but we're still here and available to ensure patients can access our hospitals' surgical, rehabilitation, medical, and mental health services when they need it."

Mr Kelly said Brisbane Waters Private Hospital was underpinned by an experienced team of trained staff, leading doctors and specialists.
