Calvary partners with Care 24-7 to restore round-the-clock private emergency care for southern Tasmanians

Calvary partners with Care 24-7 to restore round-the-clock private emergency care for southern Tasmanians.

Calvary Lenah Valley Hospital’s private emergency department will return to operating 24 hours, seven days a week from Monday, 19 August, thanks to a new partnership with Care 24-7, Australia’s largest privately-run emergency medical specialist practice.

Calvary Health Care and Care 24-7 have long-shared a commitment to providing excellent private emergency care and have agreed to extend the existing partnership in South Australia since 2020 to southern Tasmanians.


Calvary Regional Chief Executive, Tasmania, Melissa Evans, said the partnership was great news for Calvary Lenah Valley Hospital and the local community, providing patients with genuine choice where to receive care.

“We had reduced our emergency department hours due to medical staffing shortages, which are essential for safe clinical care, and this partnership with Care 24-7 will ensure we have clinically appropriate care available around the clock, seven days a week,” Ms Evans said.

“Final preparations are underway including; medical staff appointments, cosmetic upgrades to the department and signage. New technology implementation and training will soon begin to ensure an enhanced experience for patients and staff.”

“This partnership offers southern Tasmanians the benefits of Calvary’s 80-plus-year tradition of providing the Hobart community with contemporary, safe and quality care through hospital and home care services, combined with Care 24-7’s highly regarded emergency specialists aided by world-class medical technology,” said Ms Evans.

Care 24-7 Managing Director, Dr Sharad Pandit, said the partnership was a welcome extension of the close working relationship with Calvary, and would capitalise on Care 24-7’s people, systems and processes, which resulted in more than 92 per cent of patients likely to recommend emergency departments under its management.

“We have a longstanding partnership with Calvary in Australia and we now look forward to working with the whole team in Hobart to deliver a world-class emergency service for the people of southern Tasmania,” Dr Pandit said.
