Tuggerah Lakes Private Hospital is officially open.
With a total of over $31M invested in facilities and equipment, and after more than 18 months of construction, the new private hospital, based in Kanwal, opened its doors on May 6.
“We are so excited to be opening the doors of our state-of-the-art facility to the people of the northern end of the Central Coast,” said Tuggerah Lakes Private Hospital CEO, Laura Barnett.
Located directly opposite Wyong Public Hospital, Tuggerah Lakes Private Hospital occupies a prime location on the corner of the Pacific Hwy and Craigie Ave.
“The construction project undertaken over the past 18 months has involved a multitude of local suppliers, community leaders, school children and doctors.
It is truly a hospital built by local people, for local people,” said Barnett.
Part of the Healthe Care Australia Group, Tuggerah Lakes Private Hospital will complement the range of private surgical, medical, mental health and rehabilitation services currently on offer further down the Central Coast, at the group’s other established hospitals, Gosford Private Hospital and Brisbane Waters Private Hospital.
Tuggerah Lakes Private is set to attract high quality specialists and surgeons from across the Coast, Sydney and Newcastle, and includes three operating theatres, day and inpatient beds, specialist consulting rooms, Pathology and Radiology services, and an on-site café.
It caters for multiple specialties including: Orthopaedics; Ear, Nose and Throat; Gastroenterology; General Surgery; Colorectal; Gynaecology; Urology; Plastic Surgery; Vascular Surgery and Dental.
The new hospital will also create up to 50 jobs and has already attracted a huge amount of interest from local residents, with over 300 applications received for the positions that have been advertised so far.
