Wollongong Private Hospital Turns One

Feb 15, 2017

A year has quickly passed since Wollongong Private Hospital opened its doors, and recently the hospital celebrated its birthday with a group of little patients who also just reached this special milestone. Many of the very first babies born at Wollongong Private Hospital, along with the hospital’s first inpatients, revisited the facility to join in the birthday celebrations.

Since Wollongong Private Hospital began servicing the region in January 2016, patients have had access to a number of new local private health care services such as advanced Neurosurgery, Interventional Cardiology and Day Oncology. New equipment installed at the hospital, including the much anticipated Mazor Robot for spinal surgery, has meant that patients have access to world leading technologies without leaving the Illawarra.

Patient feedback collected during the first year of operation has consistently revealed that that patients have been delighted by the brand new facilities and luxurious accommodation, but equally impressed that the hospital has continued to provide the same personable, quality care they have become familiar with at Figtree Private Hospital.

In the hospital’s first year of operation, Wollongong Private Hospital has delivered 951 babies and performed close to 14,000 surgical procedures. The new private hospital has attracted 80 new doctors and employed 170 new staff members.
