Overwhelming local community support helped open St Vincent’s Private Community Hospital Griffith in 2016. The Hospital provides residents of the Murrumbidgee region a 20-bed private hospital with specialist inpatient services. Importantly, this facility means many will no longer need to travel long distances for specialist medical care. This ultimately means reduced travel costs and family separation.
Specialty services have expanded in the past 4 years and as a result of demand from the community, St Vincent’s Private Community Hospital is now looking to expand the Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) services. Regional NSW has a critical shortage of medical services treating ear, nose and throat conditions, thyroid disorders, and cancers of the head and neck.
St Vincent’s Private Community Hospital Griffith now seeks help to fund new equipment to support the introduction of new ENT services in Griffith to be run by two of Australia’s leading Head and Neck surgeons from St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney. A/Prof Richard Gallagher is the Director of Cancer Services at St Vincent’s Health Network Sydney and a leading specialist in head and neck tumours, cancers of the throat, laryngeal, tracheal and thyroid surgery, neck lumps and disorders of the sinuses. He will be joined by Dr Brett Leavers, an ENT specialist with extensive experience in general ear nose and throat conditions in children and adults, sinonasal, thyroid, salivary gland disorders, and cancers of the head and neck.
Support is needed to raise $60,000 towards the costs to buy and install the specialist ENT equipment for this new service.
