About us

At My HealthCity, we have an exceptional team of Medical Professionals and frontline staff in providing our Patients with the very best care.

The Practice began life as Q Medical in April, 2012 at the completion of the purpose built Mater Health Centre. In June 2014, Hope Island General Practice was established, evolving into the current Centre, MY HEALTHCITY in July 2018.

We have a few simple work philosophies at our Practice: We try never to have a culture of blame We adopt the “One Minute Manager” (Blanchard and Johnston) strategy of trying to catch our staff doing things right and letting them know Laughter is never frowned upon We let everyone know there is no such thing as a stupid question Doctors, Nurses and all other staff eat at the same table, converse around the same coffee machine and cookie jar (both popular items) and EVERYONE washes their own cups and dishes Oh, and we have extremely good Christmas Parties where everyone is on a first name basis and titles are left at the door for the day We believe if you have good people and you allow them to do good things and make sure they are happy doing it, good things will happen! Our Practice is within the Mater Health Centre located on Halcyon Way, offering the following convenient services all under the one roof:

Pharmacy. Pathology. Radiology. Dental. Physiotherapy. Podiatry.
