How we work

There are many different pathways to establishing a new facility

A custom approach

We develop a solution based on your needs as a surgeon.

 

Different options are available based on: 

  • Your preferred approach to risk and return 

  • Whether you have a development interest

  • Your long term financial or surgical goals

We provide the full suite of services as needed by you, and establish the right mix of services and equity injection to suit your preferences.

Brownfield or greenfield opportunities

New opportunities can be found in both greenfield or brownfield developments. This refers to standalone building construction or fit-out and renovation of an existing facility.

Greenfield opportunities can be more expensive to develop but these developments often have a higher opportunity to create a fit-for-purpose facility. This approach allows you to create a facility that exactly matches the case mix of the surgeons, the preferred look and feel of the building and the preferred location. It also allows for the development of a contained services ecosystem with compatible and supporting co-tenants such as consulting suites, radiology, pathology and allied services.

In many instances a brownfield development on an existing site transforms a smaller or outdated facility into one that can maximise the demand for services and the potential of the site. A brownfield development can take advantage of existing licensing, health fund agreements and established infrastructure.
