Women in the Wide Bay Burnett Region can now access a unique new health service at Australia’s first fully integrated digital hospital – St Stephen’s Hospital in Hervey Bay.
Dr Regina Wulf
, Dr Phillip Hall
and Dr Dana Moisuc
and have been brought together to lead the clinic.
The three gynaecologists will offer comprehensive care in response to women’s needs within the region, reducing the need to travel long distances to access this range and level of care.
The Women’s Health Clinic provides a wide range of services including gynaecology, infertility, pelvic floor surgery and management of menopause.
“We are delighted to have this new service for women in our region by providing a full range of options from regular pap smear testing, various laparoscopic procedures, assisting with urinary incontinence through to major surgery and IVF,” Ms Cruwys said.
“This is only another step in our goal of continuing to expand the services available to our local communities and we will continue to expand the treatments and care we provide based on the needs of the Wide Bay Burnett Region.”
Dr Regina Wulf will be based full-time at St Stephen’s offering comprehensive service including excision of endometriosis, ovarian cystectomy and prolapse surgery.
She said: “I am delighted to be coming to reside in this beautiful part of the world and I look forward to providing women across the Fraser Coast, Wide Bay and the North and South Burnett with a range of options for their healthcare that they otherwise may not have had.”
Dr Phillip Hall who is currently the Director of the Pelvic Medicine Centre at St Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital in Brisbane, is pleased to extend his services to St Stephen’s Hospital.
He said: “I look forward to not only working with my colleagues but also assisting women throughout the region with their particular healthcare needs.”
Dr Dana Moisuc, an obstetrician and gynaecologist who also practices from The Sunshine Coast Private Hospital, said: “I have worked closely with urologists, colorectal surgeons and pelvic floor physiotherapists and I hope to establish the same network here on the Fraser Coast.”
Patients who are interested in accessing the Women’s Health Clinic must seek a referral from the GP.
St Stephen’s Hospital is part of UnitingCare Health, a not-for-profit private hospital group operated by UnitingCare Queensland, which provides health and community services on behalf of the Uniting Church.
