Fresh from opening its doors to the public in January, Australia’s only hotel and hospital in the one building, which consists of Essence Suites Taringa and Westside Private Hospital, recently welcomed its first guest and patient from Aesthetic and Reconstructive (AR) Plastic Surgery.
As Dr Eddie Cheng from AR Plastic Surgery prepared for his first surgical procedure at the newly established facilities, his patient flew into Brisbane and travelled via train directly to the central location of Taringa in preparation for her surgery.
Essence Suites Taringa welcomed the patient, before she checked in to her Suite and travelled via lift from the hotel on Level 7 to the hospital reception on Level 1. With the assistance of her carer, she was discharged from Westside Private Hospital after surgery with Dr Cheng and was able to relax and recover in her brand new, beautifully-appointed accommodation suite of Essence Suites Taringa.
Westside Private Hospital and Montserrat Day Hospital’s CEO Ben Korst said, “Westside Private Hospital is Brisbane’s newest short stay private hospital. With direct lift access to Essence Suites Taringa, we know that Queensland’s only Hotel and Hospital is a welcome addition to Brisbane’s west.”
Brisbane’s latest hotel, Essence Suites Taringa, is managed by Essence’s parent company UniLodge Australia.
UniLodge Australia CEO Tomas Johnsson said, “As a uniquely integrated hotel and hospital building, Essence Suites Taringa is a fantastic new addition to our growing portfolio of healthcare accommodation properties throughout Australia and cements our role in the tourism space.”
Specialist Plastic Surgeon Dr Eddie Cheng said, “It’s wonderful that my patients can seamlessly transition from being a patient in day surgery, to a guest of Essence Suites Taringa, as I believe that recovery is just as important as the surgery itself. We are looking forward to building on this unique partnership with Westside Private Hospital and Essence Suites Taringa in order to deliver exceptional patient experiences for both our local, interstate and overseas travelling patients.”
The unique building design, modern accommodation, and convenient location can be enjoyed for any conventional purpose whilst also allowing unprecedented convenience for medical stays.
