Our History

For 50 years, health care 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, evolving into South Coast Radiology.

Since 1967, South Coast Radiology has evolved to become the largest radiology group on the Gold Coast, and one of the largest and longstanding radiology organisations in South East Queensland. Our longevity is a testament of our commitment to provide exceptional patient care, continuous development and investment in state-of-the-art technology, and innovation. South Coast Radiology remains the Gold Coast’s leader in diagnostic medical imaging.

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 means that we regularly seek experienced staff to join our group. For more information about working with South Coast Radiology, please visit our careers page.

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

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.

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.
