Wisdom for times of transition
The Lakeview Private Hospital officially launched today, designed and run by 48 specialist doctors.
The hospital is the creation of a group of professionals at a day surgery clinic in Castle Hill, who decided to set up a larger scale hospital for specialist surgery in Sydney’s Western Suburbs.
Ruth Miller, head of nursing at the new hospital, said making the transition happen was a unique experience.
“We were used to having in-patients, although we only had six beds,” Miller said, adding the team faced a number of challenges during the transition.
“We had to find staff who would be competent in their specialties,” she explained. “We’re trying look at training our own staff up, but at the same time we need to have several who know what they’re doing from the get go.”
