In order to pursue his passion for diagnostic ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Dr Frank Carmody founded the Wesley Fetal Medicine Unit at the Wesley Medical Centre in 1991. His aim was to provide a tertiary referral centre and high quality diagnostic ultrasound service to pregnant women, and women requiring gynaecological scanning. Frank particularly wanted to provide personal, informative and affordable care to his patients.
By March 2004, the Wesley Unit was operating to capacity serving not only the Brisbane area but also women from remote areas of Queensland and New South Wales. The ability to support patient numbers required a second unit to be established. The Sunnybank Fetal Medicine Unit opened in August 2004 and offers the same high level of quality care for patients on the south side of Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
Our mission is to provide our patients with the highest quality diagnostic ultrasound scanning using state of the art technology by highly qualified staff. It is our aim that patients and their families have a complete and thorough understanding of the procedure and outcome. This will be delivered in a non discriminatory environment that ensures privacy, confidentiality and respect.
