SPORTSMED·SA will provide South Australians access to a variety of high-quality healthcare services in one convenient location as we expand our Stepney site in 2016-17.
Radiology, pharmacy and pathology services will join our orthopaedic surgeons, sports doctors, physiotherapists, podiatrists, massage therapists, exercise physiologists, dietitian and the private orthopaedic hospital at Stepney.
The expansion will transform Stepney into an innovative and high-quality healthcare hub that offers patients a one-stop location for all their medical needs.
Construction broke ground in December 2016 and includes the addition of the following facilities:
CEO of SPORTSMED·SA Hospital and Orthopaedics, Alan Morrison said the expansion of the Stepney site with the inclusion of the new services sees SPORTSMED·SA continue its commitment to providing South Australians access to quality and innovative orthopaedic and sport medicine care.
“We know that when an injury or ailment occurs you put your life on hold and stop doing the things you love – whether that’s work, sport, travel or spending quality time with your family,” Mr Morrison said.
“By expanding SPORTSMED·SA and bringing onsite these additional services, we can offer patients easy and convenient access to diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation services in one location.
“Since we began over 25 years ago, SPORTSMED·SA has been different to other healthcare providers. We have offered our patients access to a specialist multidisciplinary team of orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists, sports doctors and podiatrists that work together to find the best solution and service in the diagnosis, treatment and recovery of orthopaedic, sporting, musculoskeletal and arthritis conditions.
“We have always been a one-stop shop for all your sporting and orthopaedic needs and over the past year have expanded our services to several locations in South Australia – Stepney, Blackwood, Henley Beach. Kurralta Park, Morphett Vale, Mt Gambier and Victor Harbor – making it easier for our patients to access high-quality health services in their local community.
“This new development will make it possible for patients to undertake their entire investigation and treatment program at one location. We’ve teamed up with some of the best radiology, pathology and pharmacy providers to make it easier for patients to get back on track and back to health.
“The expanded facility will also enable an increase in the number of sports doctors, sports physicians and orthopaedic surgeons over the next few years. This will enable us to meet the demand for orthopaedic services in the older demographic predicted to overwhelm the health system in the next 10 years.”
