Hearts West joins GenesisCare to provide cutting edge cardiac services to West Australians

Thursday July 30th

GenesisCare, the largest private provider of cancer and cardiac health services in Australia, announced an exciting new partnership with Hearts West from July 2019.

This dynamic collaboration will provide improved access to high quality heart care for GenesisCare patients in Perth through the addition of clinical skills and expertise from Hearts West cardiologists.

For the past 17 years, Hearts West has been a provider of specialist cardiology services across four sites in the Perth metropolitan area (Perth, Murdoch, Armadale and Rockingham) and consists of five cardiologists and 30 employees. From July 2019, the Hearts West centres will form part of the GenesisCare network of cardiac centres.

Brendon Ball, General Manager of Cardiology for GenesisCare in Western Australia said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for us, as patients will now have access to two of WA’s leading advanced heart failure management specialists. Our expertise in echocardiography, electrophysiology and structural heart disease will also be strengthened through the partnership.”

Barry McKeown, Hearts West cardiologist, also expressed great enthusiasm about the partnership and its impact on the future of cardiac services in Western Australia: “By becoming part of the GenesisCare network, our doctors will now be able to expand their reach to treat more patients across the state. It also means our Hearts West patients will be able to access a broader range of cutting-edge techniques and technologies, as well as clinical trials such as HighLife and Maveric.”

The HighLife and Maveric clinical trials seek to evaluate the effectiveness of a new valve in patients with severe mitral regurgitation who are unable to undergo open heart surgery.

During this exciting transition period for Hearts West and GenesisCare, business operations will continue as usual and there will be no changes to patient care.

“The Hearts West doctors are incredibly hardworking and innovative, and the team shares the same vision and values as ours. The future is looking bright for patients requiring heart care in Western Australia,” said Brendon Ball.
