North Shore Private Turns 20
2018 marks the 20th anniversary of North Shore Private and an important milestone for our hospital. When North Shore Private opened its doors in 1998 it soon became the benchmark of private hospital care in Australia. Opening with 164 beds, 530 staff and eight operating theatres a comprehensive range of specialized medical and clinical services were provided across all major fields, including cardiac, neurosurgery, vascular, orthopaedics and obstetrics.
Over the last twenty years the hospital has seen incredible growth, not only of the world-class facilities and services we offer but also the establishment of highly experienced teams of professionals. We now boast 313 beds, and offer every patient their own private room. Later this year completion of a new operating theatre will deliver our 17th theatre. The hospital’s specialties are vast and include orthopaedics, obstetrics, neurosurgery, cardiac surgery, cardiology, ear nose and throat, vascular, breast & endocrine, plastics, oncology, general surgery and urology, pain medicine, intensive care and aged care.
We strive to offer world class equipment and offer the latest in 3D surgical technology, computer assisted surgery, a state of the art cardiac catheter lab including Australia’s first MedInBox educational technology, cutting edge hybrid theatres and world class radiology and diagnostic services.
North Shore Private, a Sydney University teaching hospital, is involved in some of the world’s most innovative research programs. This includes the ICHOM low back pain initiative - a joint initiative with Harvard and The Boston Children's Hospital - which tracks patients with low back pain up to five years.
In 2018, we have over 1100 staff. Since our beginning in 1998 our team have delivered the vision of our founder Paul Ramsay. The Ramsay Health slogan "People Caring for People" is synonymous with the way we operate our business. We recognise that we operate in an industry where "care" is not just a value statement, but a critical part of the way we must go about our daily interactions in order to meet the expectations of our customers, our patients and our staff. Our staff pride themselves on the Ramsay Way values and have a caring, progressive, and positive spirit in their attitude to their work and patients. We have 49 staff celebrating their 20 year work anniversary with the hospital this year!
We feel privileged to have being trusted to provide your hospital care throughout the last 20 years and we hope you trust us with your hospital care for many years to come. We love what we do and look forward to delivering excellent care and facilities for the next 20 years and beyond.
