In 2010 we formed an association of radiologists to tender for the Ballarat Health Services Radiology contract and were successful. Since then, our service in Ballarat has grown ignificantly, which has allowed us to employ an additional 6 radiology specialists, 3 nuclear physicians and 2 senior registrars over the last 6 years. This in turn has enabled us to broaden our range of services, and expand our commitment to the communities that we service.
In 2011 we established High St Xray, a large private outpatient imaging service in Bendigo. Our focus on “answering the clinical question” has been well received by the Bendigo medical community, and as a result our clinic was further expanded in 2014, doubling in size to meet increasing demand.
Our next stage of growth came in 2015 when our group was named the successful tenderer for the provision of radiology services to Goulburn Valley Health in Shepparton. In addition to provision of specialist radiologists, we now also operate a fully privatised nuclear medicine service at Goulburn Valley Health.
In 2016 we opened Sovereign Radiology, a comprehensive private outpatient clinic in Ballarat, offering residents in the region greater choice in providers and access to latest in medical imaging technology and techniques.
The result: Real community benefits due to excellent patient care, a comprehensive service offering, and our subspecialist expertise.
Over the last 6 years we have been able to expand our service offering in these centres, so we now deliver:
- The full range of diagnostic radiology services, including MRI.
- Nuclear medicine, including SPECT/CT.
- A full range of interventional radiology services (including those performed in the dedicated Cardiovascular suite in Ballarat).
The result: State of the art diagnostic and interventional radiology services on offer in regional Victoria.
