Our History and Values

South Coast Radiology has a long-standing history as a leading imaging service provider across the Gold Coast and Tweed areas.

For 50 years, healthcare professionals have relied on South Coast Radiology to provide exceptional medical imaging services and the highest level of patient care to the Gold Coast and Tweed communities.

Radiologist Dr David Jones opened the practice that would become South Coast Radiology at 125 Nerang Street, Southport in 1967. Two years later, Dr Peter Ryan joined the practice forming Jones and Ryan Radiologists. From these humble beginnings, their practice evolved into what is now South Coast Radiology. In all the years since, the vision of providing state of the art radiography and medical imaging services for the Gold Coast community and its surrounding areas has always remained.

Since 1967, South Coast Radiology has evolved to become the largest radiology and diagnostic medical imaging group on the Gold Coast.

Our longevity is a testament to our commitment to providing exceptional patient care, continuous development, and investment in state-of-the-art technology. South Coast Radiology remains the Gold Coast’s leader in diagnostic medical imaging.

A history of 50 years of longstanding and trusted relationships with the medical practitioners in our regions makes for a smooth and well-practised transition between a patient’s doctor and South Coast Radiology. Organisational items such as bookings, pre-procedure briefings, discussions between radiologists and referrers, patient preparation, information, and patient support are completed proficiently.

Our Contribution to the Community

Since the company’s inception, South Coast Radiology radiologists have contributed valuable services to public health initiatives through consultant services at the Gold Coast University Hospital, RPA Hospital, Queensland Children’s Hospital, and BreastScreen Queensland at Southport.

Our radiologists continue to provide important medical imaging education via a robust internal CPD education program for all staff; and also externally via weekly and fortnightly sub-specialty radiology meetings, participation in multi-disciplinary patient management meetings, and an extensive GP education program.

South Coast Radiology employs over 300 staff, including radiologists, radiographers, nuclear medicine technologists, sonographers, registered nurses, administrative staff, couriers, and clerical practice support teams. Our continued innovation and development of new services mean that we regularly seek experienced staff to join our group.

Our Practices

Our 15 well-located practices expand conveniently across the Tweed and Gold Coast, as well as operating regional medical imaging services for doctors and patients in Toowoomba at Darling Downs Radiology and Mackay at Mackay Radiology.

As a testament to the company’s commitment to women’s imaging, in 2011 South Coast Radiology founded a dedicated practice for women’s imaging in Southport. The Women’s Imaging Center (TWIC) is designed to meet the unique health care needs of women by providing specialised diagnostic imaging services in a caring and comfortable atmosphere.

South Coast Radiology have been servicing patients at Pindara Private Hospital for almost 20 years, and John Flynn Private Hospital since their opening in 1993, and provide both inpatients and outpatients with comprehensive on-call radiology services 24/7, 365 days a year.
