Locals now have greater access to specialist health care on Bribie Island, with one of the world’s largest and most diverse private health care companies, Ramsay Health Care, opening specialist consulting suites at Bongaree.
Moreton Bay Regional Councillor Brooke Savige declared the rooms officially open at a 17 June event attended by local GPs, specialists consulting on the island, and some of the team from Caboolture Private Hospital, which is part of Ramsay Health Care.
A number of specialists will regularly visit Ramsay Consulting Suites Bribie Island to support pre- and post-operative care across gastroenterology, urology, general surgery, orthopaedics and general medicine including infectious diseases.
Caboolture Private Hospital CEO Chris Murphy said his team are committed to making quality health care easily accessible for locals close to home, at 60 Hornsby Road Bongaree, in front of the shopping centre.
“We felt that it would be beneficial for the residents of Bribie Island to be able to schedule appointments to see specialist surgeons and physicians in their local community.
“Most of the specialist doctors currently consult and admit at Caboolture Private and we will also have other key specialists visiting from Ramsay hospitals on the Sunshine Coast. This will broaden the overall range of specialists who will consult and also reduce travel for local residents.”
