Flinders Private Hospital prides itself on providing its patients and their families with the best possible care.

The hospital is renowned for its excellence in the areas of Cardiology, Orthopaedics, General Surgery, General Medicine, Gynaecology, Urology and Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery, and is constantly evolving to provide the very best in healthcare.

From the surgeons to the chefs, many people and professions work together to grow the culture of the hospital, ensuring that the diverse range of services work together seamlessly.

Professor Simon Carney has been working at Flinders Private Hospital for over 18 years and loves that it’s a modern hospital that allows for excellent, contemporary management of patients.

Every step from admission to discharge has been carefully considered according to Administration Manager, Daniel Cullen.

“We get all patients ready in regards to their paperwork, their medical records. We are able to admit them, escort them up to the wards and answer any questions they may have.

We ensure that their visitors and their families can see them after surgery and we look after them as best as we can.”

What’s even better for patient care is that the Flinders Medical Centre, a large tertiary hospital, and Flinders Private Hospital are co-located with adjoining corridors.  This means the consulting doctors can work across both public and private hospitals.

Patients from Flinders Medical Centre have the opportunity to transfer as a private patient to the private hospital if they are wanting to utilise their private health insurance.

Customer service and the quality of the patient experience is a top priority at the hospital. Recently, former patients were invited to return as a consumer to provide feedback on any areas that could be improved such as bedding and food services.

The team in the kitchen at Flinders Private Hospital, led by Executive Chef Brian Fossey, are extremely passionate about serving good, safe food for all patients to help them in their recovery and ensure they return home as soon as possible.

“I just love the patient interaction,” says Kathy Murphy, a Food Services Assistant who has been working in Flinders Private Hospital for eleven years.

“I think they’re [patients] here for different reasons and just having a smiling face come and approach them can just make their day.”

But it’s not just the patients that are benefiting from the interactive culture of Flinders Private Hospital, the staff are too.

As a Perioperative Nurse, Georgia Warner loves working at Flinders Private Hospital as it has great family work-life balance. Georgia says the department have been extremely accommodating and flexible with her working hours allowing her to work part-time as she has a one and half year-old daughter.

Flinders Private Hospital prides itself on providing better patient outcomes and they are able to achieve that best by working as a team.
