How you benefit

Photo of tradesman Our direct billing arrangements with Workcover and self insured companies ensure your employees will bear no out-of-pocket expenses.

With us, you will provide quality and timely emergency care for your employees at the same rate that you would pay at a public hospital, with the difference of having your injured workers seen within a short time from arrival, if not immediately.

Private health insurance is not required.

Work-related injuries are expertly assessed and treated at our private emergency centre by our experienced doctors and nurses.

The centre provides emergency care across most specialties. If required, patients can be referred to the St Andrew’s leading group of orthopaedic and neurosurgery specialists who are available onsite at the hospital.

Our emergency centre has:

- state-of-the-art equipment
- life-saving critical care resuscitation areas
- bedside ultrasound ​
- orthopaedic procedure rooms
- eye equipment
- on-site 24-hour expert radiology and pathology services.

Anyone can attend our emergency centre. No referral required from your General Practitioner.
