Nov 16, 2022

St Andrew’s Ipswich Private Hospital has unveiled stage one of its $44 million development, opening two new state-of-the-art operating theatres.

The two new Stryker iSuites take the total number of operating theatres at the hospital to ten. 

St Andrew’s Ipswich Private Hospital CEO, Michael Lewczuk, said the two new theatres will support the recent increase in demand for surgical and robotic cases at the hospital.

“I’m pleased to showcase our two new, state-of-the-art operating theatres which will allow us to perform even more surgical and robotics surgeries for the people of Ipswich,” Mr Lewczuk said. 

The theatres will support an increase in neurosurgery cases and allow us to expand our robotics offerings into the specialties of Gynaecology and General Surgery as well as increasing capacity for the existing robotic Urology program.

“I thank Ramsay Health Care for its continued commitment to the people of Ipswich and investing in Suites and technology designed to improve patient experience and outcomes.”

St Andrew’s Ipswich Private Hospitals ten operating theatres are supported by a cardiac catheter lab and an 11th theatre shell which can be quickly converted to an operating theatre as needed.    

The remaining stages of the $44 million development at St Andrew’s Ipswich Private Hospital include a new Comprehensive Cancer Centre, renal dialysis services, expanded radiology services and a new day rehabilitation program space purpose built for the needs of patients.

“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 patients to have to travel to Brisbane for health care,” Mr Lewczuk said.
