Northside Group Macarthur Clinic is celebrating five years of making a difference in the lives of mental health patients and they have plans to expand capacity.
Part of Ramsay Health Care, the centre opened in Campbelltown, Western Sydney on October 31, 2013, providing specialised and holistic treatment for mental health conditions.
Northside Group CEO, Anne Mortimer, said the clinic had been designed with the vision of providing an innovative, holistic treatment centre, that caters to the specific needs of people suffering from mental health disorders, as well as those in the community that are committed to their mental health and wellness.
“Macarthur Clinic has developed significantly since opening in 2013 and is currently undergoing an exciting expansion to accommodate the mental health needs of the region’s growing population,” Ms Mortimer said.
“The expansion will transform the clinic from a 34-bed hospital to a 48-bed clinic, with all single private rooms.
“It is the only mental health facility in the Macarthur area.”
The centre offers evidence-based clinical care, provided by a dedicated team of health professionals including psychiatrists, psychologists and specialist mental health nurse therapists.
It also offers the Northside Group “Four Pillar Program to Health and Recovery”, which has been implemented across all Northside Group clinics and has been successful in rehabilitating thousands of patients since its launch.
The program focuses holistically on a patient’s psychological, physical, nutritional and social health.
“This outstanding facility embodies the latest thinking in program delivery, therapy and nutrition,” Ms Mortimer said.
“It supports an approach to health by offering a well-rounded program addressing medical, psychological and counselling, psychosocial, recreational, physical and diversional interventions.
“The hospital has been developed to cater for both inpatient and day patient programs while also providing private outpatient appointments within the onsite consulting suites.”
Macarthur Clinic is part of the Northside Group, which is Sydney’s largest and most established private psychiatric hospital group, operated by Ramsay Health Care.
