John Flynn Hospital to power up health care on the Gold Coast

eTradeWire News/10569958
GOLD COAST, Australia - eTradeWire -- The highly-anticipated, $30 million redevelopment of John Flynn Private Hospital is now complete, giving residents in the southern Gold Coast and northern New South Wales regions the very best in health care.

The redevelopment gives patients access to a huge range of expanded services, including 30 extra private rooms, two operating theatres, doubling the size of the Emergency Department, 116 carparks plus new imaging and renal dialysis facilities.

Newly appointed Chief Executive Officer of John Flynn Private Hospital, Adam Stevenson, said the upgrade would revolutionise patient care in the region.

"The ED expansion, increased theatre capacity and the extra ward give us the opportunity to treat more patients more quickly, and we have better options for our surgeons," Mr Stevenson said.

"The facilities are right up to date with the most modern technology and it's all brand new."

Mr Stevenson, who was CEO at Mildura Private Hospital before moving with his family to the Gold Coast earlier this month to take on his new role at John Flynn, said the $30 million redevelopment had been dubbed the 'P.O.W.E.R project' because it was an acronym representing the hospital's five major upgrades:

P - PET scanner
O - Operating Theatres
W - Ward
E - Emergency Department
R - Renal Dialysis

"The two new operating theatres will help reduce surgery waiting times and increase convenience for patients and doctors, while the new ward will create 30 extra private single-bed rooms, affording patients more comfort during their stay," Mr Stevenson said.

"The Emergency Department expansion brings the number of bays to 14 plus four associated rooms and ED patients will no longer have to pay out-of-pocket costs for medical imaging services at John Flynn, thanks to a partnership with South Coast Radiology."

South Coast Radiology's new state-of-the-art Digital PET scanner will be the first fully digital scanner in Queensland and a first for any private imaging company in Australia.

Mr Stevenson said South Coast Radiology would also run John Flynn's new nuclear medicine department.

"A new Renal Dialysis Unit also marks a major milestone for the hospital, as it has been moved from the main building to the John Flynn Cancer Centre - meaning it is now co-located with the new Day Oncology Unit,"  he said.

"The renovation was able to be completed much sooner than originally planned, by incorporating existing space beneath the original buildings rather than constructing a new building from scratch."
