Alpine Health is a Multi-Purpose Service and as a public health organisation, we provide a facility in which your doctor is able to perform your procedure.
Alpine Health is a small rural health service, therefore we are limited as to what and whom we perform surgery on. Patients who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 35 may not be able to have a general anaesthetic. Any person who has concurrent medical problems may not be appropriate to have surgery at Alpine Health.
This Multi-Purpose Service does not have Doctors on staff at the three hospitals. All of the procedural work is performed by Doctors credentialed by the Board of Directors. Some of these services are provided on a private basis by your doctor and may be billed to you directly by him / her. For further clarification discuss this with your Doctor.
