Ramsay Health Care has built a brand-new private hospital, the Northern Private Hospital. This is located within the Riverlee New Epping estate, 22km from Melbourne’s CBD. The private hospital is located at 12 Osburn Place and it opened its doors to the public on 5 February 2024.

Northern Private Hospital features 70 patient beds, four operating theatres, a cardiac catheterisation lab, a sleep study unit, a day chemotherapy unit, on-site pharmacy, pathology and medical imaging.

The wide range of specialties available include general medicine, cancer care, cardiac care, ENT, orthopaedics, IVF and fertility, vascular care, urology, nephrology, gastroenterology, general surgery, thoracic surgery, respiratory and sleep services and plastic and reconstructive surgery.

The Northern Private Hospital will also accept referrals direct from GPs, helping to take pressure off local emergency departments and reduce wait times for patients.
