Glengarry Private Hospital celebrates milestone with 15,000 endoscopy patients

Aug 30, 2022

Glengarry Private Hospital has achieved a significant milestone with the endoscopy service welcoming 15,000 patients since the endoscopy service expanded in 2019 with the opening of a second procedure room.

“The endoscopy service plays an important role in helping meet the health care needs of Western Australians,” Ms Rimmer, Clinical Nurse Manager, said.

“The early detection and diagnosis of conditions such as bowel cancer is resulting in better treatment options and increased survival rates.”

People diagnosed earlier with bowel cancer are not only more likely to survive, but they also have lower treatment morbidity and improved quality of life compared to those diagnosed later. 1

The endoscopy service provides patients with a comprehensive range of diagnostic and therapeutic services using quality, high definition flexible endoscopes, processors and the latest reprocessing equipment.

Some of the endoscopy procedures/services include:

  • Gastroscopy
  • Colonoscopy
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy
  • Bowel Cancer screening and detection
  • Biologics infusions for patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Conditions treated at the endoscopy service include coeliac disease, Barrett’s oesophagus, stomach ulcers, swallowing disorders and unexplained anaemia.

The endoscopy service is in a 15-bed Day Procedure Unit and is supported by a team of dedicated experienced nursing staff and technicians, gastroenterologists, general surgeons and consultant anaesthetists.
