East Sydney Private Hospital expands facilities

East Sydney Private Hospital has expanded its facilities to meet the growing demand for short stay surgical options.

The expansion will see the addition of two new theatres and 14 new beds, bringing the hospital’s total capacity to eight theatres and 40 beds. The new theatres will specialise in a range of orthopaedic procedures, including hip and knee replacements and spinal surgery.

To commemorate the occasion, a ribbon-cutting ceremony will be performed by a robot, a nod to the hospital’s dedication to innovation in health care.

Dr Razvan Stoita, an Orthopaedic Surgeon at East Sydney Private Hospital, highlighted the benefits of the hospital’s new features, including the Zimmer ‘ROSA’ Robot.

The robot is designed to assist surgeons in tailoring the placement of knee implants and offer faster recovery times and improved accuracy compared to traditional methods.

“The addition of the ROSA Robot represents a significant advancement in joint replacement surgery.

“The new theatres will also be equipped with the latest laser cleaning equipment, theatre temperature control and audiovisual technology, giving surgeons the opportunity to perform procedures with enhanced precision and efficiency whilst minimising the risk of surgical site infections. It is hoped that these advancements not only improve patient outcomes but also contribute to relieving pressure on the broader health system by reducing hospital length of stay,” Stoita said.

Medibank holds a 49% minority shareholding in East Sydney Private Hospital. This expansion aligns with the organisation’s vision to improve access, choice and control in health care.
