Healthy future for Bayside Business Park

A comprehensive range of medical services and health care providers have opened their doors at the highly anticipated Bayside Business Park at Cleveland.

The new health precinct is located opposite Mater Private Hospital Redland (MPHR) in Weippin Street at Cleveland and includes private specialist suites in the Mater Private Clinic, Mater Pharmacy and Pathology services and the 24-hour Redlands General Practice.

MPHR Director of Clinical Services Cheryl Clayton said the new facilities complemented the services already provided by the hospital.

“The new health precinct has significantly improved the access that Bayside locals have to specialised health care services in their own community,” she said.

“In the past, people have had to travel to Brisbane for specialist appointments. A quality facility with specialised services in this area will certainly meet an established and growing demand.”

With the Redland population expected to increase from 132 000 to 188 000 in 2026, and one third of the population expected to be aged 55 years and over by 2016, the health precinct will service a fast-growing number of residents.

Mater Pathology relocated from the specialist suites of Mater Private Hospital to take up space in the specialised health precinct at Bayside Business Park on 30 November. The new location provides a bigger space and state-of-the-art facilities to offer a broader range of specialised services, extended opening hours and increased collections support.

A new Mater Pharmacy also opened its doors at Bayside Business Park on 18 December, offering an entirely new level of service to the Redland community. With a strong focus on community outreach, the pharmacy provides a range of health advice, education and support for locals, in addition to a full prescription service and comprehensive retail offering.

Urologist Dr Andrew Hadley was among the first specialists to commence practising at the new Mater Private Clinic on 18 November 2009.

“Although there are Urologists who support the Bayside area, there are not any who are based here,” he said.

“By living locally and establishing our main office here, we can provide a complete service—including after-hours care—to people in the area.

“Mater Private Hospital Redland is an exceptional facility and we considered that establishing the practice in such close proximity was a real opportunity. The collocated pathology, pharmacy and radiology services—together with the convenience of seeing inpatients and conducting ward rounds so close to the practice—are of real value.”
