MILESTONE FOR SUNSHINE COAST UNIVERSITY PRIVATE –
FIRST CARDIAC SURGERY CASE
Just four years after opening and after two years of
planning, the Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital
has made history performing the Sunshine Coast’s first
ever cardiac surgical case.
Prior to this, patients needing this life-changing surgery would have
to travel to Brisbane. Several procedures have now been successfully
completed by the team since the first case in November by the
hospital’s team of four cardiac surgeons, Drs Douglas Wall, Robert
Tam, Trevor Fayers and Homayoun Jalali.
Dr Wall told the Sunshine Coast Daily after the first surgery that it had
been a “good start”. “Now patients can have the same surgery offered
It is a huge positive for patients and their families and we are very
proud to bring this advanced health service to the Coast.”
Hospital CEO, Oliver Steele, paid tribute to the dedication of the team
and the Hospital’s hardworking staff in making this possible.
“This has truly been a team effort with nearly all departments across
the hospital working together to ensure the successful start of our
cardiac surgery program. We are delighted that this is another
milestone in the range of private services the Sunshine Coast
University Private Hospital offers to private patients and a great
outcome for the Sunshine Coast community,” Oli said.
The hospital’s Cardiac Surgical service took several months of intense
work including gaining regulatory approval and is part of the hospital’s
strategy to expand the range of services available to private patients
on the Sunshine Coast and Wide Bay region.
