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.  

Sleep Clinics

For our overnight sleep studies, each patient is provided with a private room and ensuite which has the feel of a hotel room.  We understand that to obtain quality sleep studies it is important to ensure patients are comfortable in their environment.  With nursing, medical and scientific staff onsite we pride ourselves on providing the highest possible standard of care for all our patients.  Our Brisbane sleep clinic and Sunshine Coast sleep clinic have recieved accreditation with the NATA/ASA Sleep Disorders Services (SDS) Accrediatation Program, from January 2014. 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.

CPAP Education and Support

Our team includes onsite CPAP educators who can provide our patients with the support they need. From initial set up we provide full support to our patients during their trial period, a wide range of masks and specially selected range of CPAP machines are available to optimise the success of our patients therapy. Being located on site with thoracic physicians therapy changes and patient queries can be quickly and effectively resolved. The Thoracic and Sleep Group had a high compliance rate with all our patients of around 80%, we believe that the excellent service and follow up support provided is the reason for our patients success.
