Invasive Cardiology to commence at St Vincent’s Private Hospital, Tooowoomba
St Vincent’s Private Hospital Toowoomba and Brisbane based cardiology practice HeartCare Partners, part of the GenesisCare network, have finalised a joint venture agreement that will deliver a comprehensive interventional cardiology service to Toowoomba and the Darling Downs.
Hospital CEO Kathryn McKeefry said the new cardiology service was an exciting addition to the hospital’s services.
“HeartCare Partners is one of Queensland's largest private providers of cardiac care. They provide a comprehensive service that includes a large range of interventional procedures performed by renowned clinicians.”
“The St Vincent’s service will commence with diagnostic angiography and will build up to include interventional services supported by on-site interventional cardiologists based in Toowoomba at St Vincent’s”, Ms McKeefry said.
“St Vincent’s already has the region’s only private 24 hour Emergency Centre to accept cardiac emergencies at any time of the day; but in the past, these patients have had to be transferred to another facility for invasive assessment and treatment”, Ms McKeefry said.
