Australia’s Deputy Prime Minister has visited Greenslopes Private Hospital to view the first-class facilities and meet some of the patients and staff.
Deputy PM Michael McCormack was joined by Senator Amanda Stoker for a tour of the day oncology services in the Cyril Gilbert Cancer Centre. They also visited the Keith Payne Unit which specialises in the treatment of veteran mental health and learned about life-changing studies underway through the Gallipoli Medical Research Foundation.
The visit was facilitated by Ramsay Health Care Australia CEO, Danny Sims, and Greenslopes Private Hospital CEO, Chris Went.
“This was a great opportunity to demonstrate to the Deputy Prime Minister first-hand how we combine the latest advances in technology and medicine with modern facilities to create high-quality care for both our current and future patients,” said Mr Sims.
The Deputy Prime Minister and Senator were also shown the hospital’s last remaining WWII bunker which has been converted into a small museum.
“While Greenslopes Private has evolved into a modern, world-class health care facility, it is also important to respect its strong veteran history. Elements like the bunker museum, Keith Payne Unit, and Gallipoli Medical Research Foundation all play a part in highlighting those veteran links,” said Mr Sims.
