Cardiac Catheter Laboratory for Ipswich
Jul 31, 2015
Work has commenced on a new Cardiac Catheter laboratory at St Andrew’s Ipswich Private Hospital.
“This is a really important advance for the region - allowing cardiac patients the option of having their angiograms in Ipswich,” said hospital CEO Chris Went.
“It is also a further demonstration of the commitment we have to ensuring our community has access to services locally.”,
The new Cardiac Catheter Laboratory follows on from other new services developed at the hospital this year including a day chemotherapy centre, and an on-site respiratory function testing laboratory.
The hospital, owned by Ramsay Health Care, continues to grow to meet the needs of the Ipswich and West Moreton region with further capacity and expansion predicted over the coming years.
Chris Junge,(Pictured) the new Cardiac Catheter Laboratory Nurse Unit Manager is looking forward to building the new service and working alongside our existing and new cardiologists to grow a comprehensive cardiac service at our hospital to complement the range of services now on offer.
“It is wonderful to be part of the great team at St. Andrews Ipswich and to play a part in bringing cardiology to the region,” Mr Junge said.
The Cardiac Catheter laboratory is set for completion in December with an official opening scheduled for early in the New Year.
