Our people


Rosemary McDonald

General Manager

As General Manager I am extremely proud of our modern multidisciplinary hospital that is operated by doctors. Putting patients first is at the heart of all we do and every decision we make. After years of planning and development, Lakeview Private Hospital officially opened in June 2015 and is now fully operational. To be part of this journey has been an incredible experience and I believe Lakeview Private Hospital sets a new standard in patient focused healthcare in Sydney’s Norwest region.

Qualifying as a Registered Nurse in 1972, I bring to my role at Lakeview Private Hospital over 40 years’ of experience in nursing and management in numerous hospital environments. Previous positions include Orthopaedic NUM at The Hills Private Hospital and Director of Nursing at Castle Hill Day Surgery. My key achievement as GM for Lakeview Private Hospital has been overseeing the establishment of all departments and on-site services – the ten operating theatres, recovery wards, Day Surgery, the Pre-admission Clinic, the rehabilitation facility, radiology, pathology and the pharmacy. Additionally, I have been responsible for directing Lakeview Private Hospital through the rigorous process of accreditation and licensing to successfully meet the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality Healthcare Standards (ACHS) and licensing by NSW Department of Health. Our success is the result of strong team work and an exceptional group of professionals who are truly committed to the Lakeview Private Hospital philosophy of Patients First.

Whether you are visiting Lakeview Private Hospital as a patient, doctor or visitor, I am sure you will feel as welcome and impressed as I do. As an accredited provider of RACGP Continued Professional Development (CPD) education programs, we are committed to helping GPs provide high quality care to their patients. For specialist doctors looking to grow their business, Lakeview Private Hospital offers the ideal choice with its location in the rapidly growing Norwest region of Sydney and exceptional working environment.

I encourage your feedback about any aspect of your experience with Lakeview Private Hospital. It is only through your comments that we can continue to grow and improve our service to continuously deliver on our commitment of Patients First.

I look forward to welcoming you to Lakeview Private Hospital.
