Our Thoracic and Sleep Clinics

Our state of the art Thoracic and Sleep clinics have been specially set up to provide the most comfortable environment possible for our patients while still supplying the doctor with the highest quality, comprehensive diagnostic reports and patient treatment.

The National Authority of Testing Authorities Australia (NATA) have developed a rigorous standard for sleep disorders services in Australia, and we are pleased to be the first private hospital services in Australia to meet this level.
