New $7 million hospital facilities Open in the Shire
Feb 28, 2011
Kareena Private Hospital today unveils its $7 million development which includes a new state-of-the-art operating theatre and endoscopy suite, eight new private rooms with ensuites and a brand new rehabilitation centre complete with hydrotherapy pool and a fully equipped gymnasium.
A new car park and major theatre and day surgery renovations were also completed as part of the redevelopment.
Hospital CEO Tim Daniel said the new facilities would significantly boost the health services in the region and assist the hospital to meet the needs of the Sutherland Shire community.
“Kareena Private Hospital has been serving the Shire for over 45 years and has established a strong reputation for the provision of excellent surgical, medical and maternity care. With an expanding and ageing population, we will be able to continue to meet the healthcare needs of the Sutherland Shire well into the future,” Mr Daniel said.
The new rehabilitation centre will open for patients on 28th February and Mr Daniel said the new facilities were a welcome addition to the hospital’s rehabilitation services.
“With these new modern rehabilitation services which include a 10 metre hydrotherapy pool with a “deep end” for deep water therapy and a new dedicated gymnasium, we look forward to being able to provide rehabilitation services for patients following orthopaedic and other types of surgery as well as patients who are requiring reconditioning from other disabling conditions.”
Kareena Private Hospital is owned and operated by Ramsay Health Care, Australia’s largest and most respected operator of private hospitals.
The project has been delivered on time and on budget thanks to Ramsay’s partnership with builders Akalan Projects.
