The Wesley Hospital
The Wesley Hospital, located in Auchenflower, Brisbane, is a not-for-profit private hospital, owned and operated by The Uniting Church of Australia, under Uniting Care Health.
With 526 beds, the Wesley is one of the largest private hospitals in Queensland and offers a wide range of clinical services in modern facilities. The Wesley employs more than 2,000 staff who work together to provide high level specialised care for all our patients.
The Wesley Hospital provides tertiary level medical and surgical services across 30 specialty areas including cardiology, urology, neurosurgery, gastroenterology, orthopaedics, maternity and women’s health. These services are supported by an intensive care unit, coronary care unit, cardiac catheter theatres, 24-hour emergency centre, renal dialysis, radiology, radiation therapy, pathology, pharmacy services, IVF, haematology and oncology services.
The Wesley Hospital boosts the second largest private art collection in Queensland. The art works are displayed throughout the corridors, wards and private rooms of the hospital for the benefit of patients, visitors and staff. The works making up the collection have been donated to the hospital by artists and hospital supporters. In addition other works are loaned by artists, private galleries, public institutions and schools.
The Wesley Hospital maintains an active art program and firmly believes that art expresses the richness and diversity of human life, and the joy of the creative spirit within each of us and as such is an important part of a balanced community and a healthy life. The Wesley's Art Curator, Maureen Hansen, manages The Wesley Art Collection and the activities of The Wesley Art Program, which include artists' commissions and promotional events.
