Ramsay Health Care opens new clinic and expands hospital to offer more for the people of Ipswich

Aug 08, 2022

Ramsay Health Care has boosted the services it offers people in and around Ipswich with the launch of a new allied health clinic, Ramsay Health Plus, and the expansion of rehabilitation services at St Andrew’s Ipswich Private Hospital.

 The new Ramsay Health Plus clinic, located at 14A Pring Street, Ipswich, is an extension of services from St Andrew’s Ipswich Private Hospital. The clinic features a team of Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists who help patients with managing ongoing chronic and acute health conditions, optimising their health and fitness and returning to work, sport or recreation.

St Andrew’s Ipswich Private Hospital CEO, Claire Thurwood, said the new Ramsay Health Plus would help people throughout the community to receive treatment outside the hospital setting.

“People may choose to come here as part of a readmission program, after surgery or for treatment independent of any hospital services,” Ms Thurwood said.

“Treatment is available to anyone in the community, and you don’t need a doctor’s referral to access Ramsay Health Plus.”

Ms Thurwood said Ramsay has also recently invested in a $44 million development of St Andrew’s Ipswich Private Hospital which will deliver a Comprehensive Cancer Centre, renal dialysis services and expanded radiology services, and two new integrated operating theatres. The expansion will also include a new day rehabilitation program space purpose built for the needs of patients.

“At Ramsay Health Care we’re committed to our Ramsay Cares strategy which focuses on investing in our local region and supporting the health and prosperity of our communities,” she said.

“This expansion is another step towards Ramsay Health Care being able to provide all the services the community of Ipswich needs, eliminating the need for the to have to travel to Brisbane for health care.”

The Ramsay Health Plus clinic offers individually-designed treatment programs for a range of health care concerns including:

  • pre and post-surgery rehabilitation
  • injuries and pain management
  • cancer treatment rehabilitation
  • pregnancy and post-natal women’s health services
  • balance and falls prevention
  • management of neurological conditions, cardiac and respiratory diseases
  • general health and wellbeing.

Ramsay Health Plus opened on 4 July. For more information head to Ramsay Health Plus, or email or to make an appointment phone (07) 3816 9211.
