South Coast Radiology Department and Pindara Private Hospital Emergency Department Redevelopment Opening

Last week marked the opening of the new Emergency Department and redeveloped South Coast Radiology clinic at Pindara Private Hospital.

Officially opened and toured by State Member for Surfers Paradise and Shadow Minister for Health Ambulance Services Mr John-Paul Langbroek MP, and Gold Coast City Mayor Tom Tate.

The upgraded emergency department is triple the size of the original department, which opened in 1987 as the first private emergency department in Australia.

"Not only were we the first but we will now also be the biggest private emergency department in Australia - certainly the biggest on the Gold Coast - and the only one with a purpose-built isolation room for infectious disease," Dr Walters said.

This is a significant occasion for South Coast Radiology and Pindara Private Hospital.
