Mission

Weststate Private will focus on core specialities – Orthopaedics, Urology, Oral and Maxillofacial, General Surgery and other specialities. Most of the specialities will be elective surgery. Our surgeons will be investors in the hospital and will be based onsite at the hospital precinct.

Guests can be accommodated in either the Day Stay, Short term Stay – 23 Hour Care, the Guest Suites or in the Intensive Care/High Dependency Unit.

Weststate Private will have long term service agreements with pathology, radiology, pharmacy and rehabilitation service providers. The procurement model for services and products is a partnership based model, that supports the E³.

Key to ensuring a world class health service which provides returns to shareholders, will be defining our culture to deliver on the vision we have set out above. Defining this culture comes to our values of CARING:

Compliance, Regulation and Research

In April 2017 we achieved a licence to build the hospital from Queensland Health. The next step in the journey is to achieve accreditation and a licence to operate, which will occur in March 2023.

The hospital will fully comply with the CSCF guidelines set out below and approved by Queensland Health in our licence to build:

Under the licences to build and operate we have to follow clinical guidelines for different procedures performed and services provided. Depending on the nature of the service these clinical service guidelines set the level of compliance we have to maintain.

The team is establishing a model of care that will provide for the highest standard of quality and guest (patient) satisfaction. This model of care will be fully compliant with ISO 9001 standards and with the AS4187 CSSD standards.

Weststate has established a relationship with ORIQL (Orthopaedic Research Institute Queensland), a non-profit, registered charity conducting clinical & scientific research in the fields of Orthopaedic Surgery & Musculoskeletal Medicine. ORIQL provides a conduit for pre-vocational orthopaedic trainees to conduct clinical research and offers arthroplasty & sports medicine fellowships, and will relocate to the facility. Our collaboration with ORIQL is important as we establish a relationship to ensure that we become a leader in Orthopaedic Surgery.

We are establishing relationships with other educational institutions like James Cook University to ensure that research and learning form a key focus of the hospital’s ongoing growth and development. We have engaged with the Deans of various faculties at James Cook University in both Townsville and Cairns. Our partnership with them would extend beyond research to teaching and creating opportunities for students to gain experience at our hospital.
