WARRNAMBOOL’S St John of God Hospital has started negotiations to open a consultancy for private health services in Hamilton.
St John of God Warrnambool chief executive, Glen Power, told The Spectator that the consultancy would allow Greater Hamilton and Glenelg Shire residents to have easier access to specialists.
“The facility will provide pre and post-acute consultations and we have already had expressions of interest from several practitioners,” Dr Power said.
“We are negotiating with St Mary’s (Catholic Church) to lease one of their buildings in the Hamilton Parish.
“We are planning to establish three consultation rooms with the requisite waiting room and conveniences.”
The St Mary’s Hamilton Parish includes a number of buildings between the Hamilton CBD and the Hamilton Base Hospital.
