New Cath Lab

New Cath Lab

Cairns Private Hospital has just opened its new Cath Lab that features a laser guided-x ray and robotic arm. The new GE Discovery IGS 730 hybrid vascular laboratory uses advanced imagery and allows for robotic manoeuvrability. It offers clinicians a new way of treating cardiac and vascular patients using minimally invasive techniques. Cairns Private Hospital has performed more than 12,000 procedures over the past 20 years including angiograms, stents, pacemakers and implanting defibrillators. The new laboratory will expand on that range of services and allow clinicians to perform other advanced procedures previously not offered in the region including electrophysiology and structural heart repairs. The new service will mean vascular and aortic procedures can be done faster and more safely for patients, making patient stays more comfortable.

People caring for people.

Ramsay Health Care's slogan "People Caring for People" was developed over 25 years ago and has become 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 operations in order to meet the expectations of our customers - our patients and our staff.
