SURGERY OWNERSHIP

The practice is privately owned be four health professionals that have had a long involvement with medical centre ownership. The current owners purchased the practice from the three doctor partners to facilitate the partners desire to reduce their workload and move into retirement. The three former owners continue to work in the practice.  

SURGERY LAYOUT

Warrawong Medical Centre has ten consulting rooms, a two bed treatment room, pathology collection room, nurses room, administration office and large tea room.

The dedicated 30 bay car park and main road location means that it is convenient for patients and doctors.

PATIENT DEMOGRAPHICS

There are a large number of young families as well as elderly patients as there are a number of age facilities in the region. Due to the factories in and around the Port Kembla and Wollongong area the practice treats a lot of workers. 

The area has a large amount of chronic disease patients. 

BILLING ARRANGEMENTS

Warrawong Medical Centre is a bulk billing practice but due to the prevalence of patients with a chronic disease there is a good opportunity to engage in GPMPs etc and the average of billings per patient at the practice is over $60 per patient. 

With doctors retiring there is a large patient demand and the opportunity to engage in chronic disease management. Our doctors regularly bill over $3,000 per day. 

PATIENT FLOWS

There is a very large patient demand in the area. Due to the aging doctor population, not just in Warrawong Medical Centre, but in and around Warrawong there has been a drop in the number of doctors in the area. 

The practice averages approximately 5 patients per hour. A new doctor would expect to see this many patients from the day they commence. 

TOWN/SUBURB FACILITIES

The practice is located approximately 5 minutes from some of the best beaches in the world. There is a major shopping centre two minutes walk from the practice. 

Warrawong is a 10 minute drive South of Wollongong and about 1.5 hours South of Sydney. 
 
SKILLS OR INTERESTS SOUGHT

The practice would like to attract a GP that is interested in family health. An interest in womens health would be advantageous.

There is a lack of skin cancer services in the area and this would be an excellent opportunity for a new doctor. 

CIRCUMSTANCES 

As the three former partner doctors of the practice move into retirement phase it is necessary to replace them. There is stronger patient demand than ever in the immediate area and Warrawong is currently a District of Workforce shortage demonstrating the need for additional GPs in the area.
