Oct 13, 2020

Westmead Private Hospital has celebrated 20 years of providing excellent health care services to the people of Western Sydney.

From its opening on 9 October 2000, Westmead Private has gone from strength to strength; now admitting more than 20,000 patients per year.

Chief Executive Officer Mike Flatley said Westmead Private had established a strong reputation of providing the best standard of medical care to its patients.

“Our people are very proud of the health care services we provide, in fact it’s one of the reasons why so many want to work for Ramsay Health Care - our core value is ‘people caring for people,” Mr Flatley said.

“We have a dedicated team of professionals who excel in their fields and I’m thrilled that a staggering 94 of them have been here since day one. It says a lot about our culture and the dedication we have to our patients.

“From anaesthetists, specialist surgeons, nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, staff and volunteers - for two decades they’ve been providing excellent care right here at Westmead Private and we’re looking forward to the next 20!” he said.

Westmead Private Hospital also has a proud tradition of investing in the latest technology and resources. From its beginnings as a 159-bed hospital in 2000, it now boasts 192-beds, 13 operating theatres, two cardiac catheterisation labs, a 16-bed intensive care unit, seven birthing suites, a 14-cot special care nursery, plus oncology and neurosurgery services.

The hospital is currently undertaking a multi-million dollar expansion which will see an extra 28 beds, 13 consulting suites and two operating theatres added to its campus by 2022.
