Who is East Sydney Private Hospital

East Sydney Private Hospital is a modern boutique private hospital located in Woolloomooloo, Sydney, with arterial access to Sydney’s southern, western and northern suburbs.

Being a smaller boutique facility enables our clinical care team, leadership team and our group of dedicated and expert medical and surgical specialists to establish very close working relationships. This connection and integrated approach ensures our hospital service delivery is seamless. Every member of the care team works in cohesion, with open lines of communication and transparency; this helps ensure your clinical journey is seamless and allows for greater personalisation in your hospital experience.

While our primary focus is firmly on patient care, we have never lost sight that family and visitors are an integral part of our patients’ healthcare journey. Providing professional customer service at all times, and maintaining strong communication lines is critical to achieving our patients’ goals of care

We encourage our patients’ loved ones and carers to participate in their healthcare journey where possible, commencing right from the start of your healthcare journey when you set your goals of care before coming into hospital.

Our Story

The Art Deco-influenced building in which East Sydney Private Hospital is located was initially built for Hastings Deering in 1938, later becoming a six-storey showroom and headquarters for City Ford.

Founded in 2014 by our Medical Director, Dr Peter Kalish, East Sydney Private Hospital is a relatively new private hospital. After acquiring levels 4 and 5 of the beautifully appointed building,

East Sydney Private Hospital attracted an abundance of highly experienced and reputable specialists across Sydney, growing its services to cover a diverse range of specialties including;
OrthopaedicsENTOphthalmology and Plastic & Cosmetic surgery.

Reaching a significant milestone of 5 years in operation, East Sydney Private identified the need for expansion, growing the hospitals’ services, and driving further innovation in healthcare delivery in a changing market. In mid-2020, health insurer Medibank Private became hospital shareholder; this has paved an exciting path for the facility to drive leading clinical care, optimal service delivery and strong value for private health insurers members.  One program which resulted from this collaboration was our Short Stay Joint Replacement program, which has no out-of-pocket surgical costs for patients in participating health funds.
