Hospitals in Brisbane

 

Brisbane has a number of hospitals that could cater to varying needs of different patients. Each hospital has its own strengths and specializations so it’s important to examine them well before putting a patient for

diagnosis and treatment. Here are some of Brisbane’s popular hospitals.

Brisbane Private Hospital, located at 259 Wickham Terrace, was introduced in February 2003, although the structure was originally known as the Holy Spirit Hospital after being purchased by the Holy Spirit sisters in 1946. It started out as a 40-bed hospital and has eventually grown throughout the years. A School of Nursing was also established in 1951, as well as the opening of the Intensive care Unit (1971), The Radiology Department (1977), Endoscopy Unit (1984) and Day Surgery Unit (1987). In February 2003, the hospital was purchased by a private investor and was renamed. Despite the new management, the new proprietors of the hospital aim to retain the good reputation that the hospital has succeeded to maintain throughout the years.
