ACT Endoscopy Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary

May 2022 marked a major milestone for ACT Endoscopy, with the centre celebrating its 10th anniversary since its opening.

Director of Nursing Katie Cawdell-Smith organised a morning tea for staff and patients to acknowledge this huge achievement.

“10 years is definitely something the whole team should be proud of, but even more so after the way we all pulled together and showed immense teamwork and positivity during the last couple of years,” Ms. Cawdell-Smith said.

“At a time when many things were uncertain, we remained consistent and provided quality care 100 percent of the time.”

In the past year alone ACT Endoscopy has assisted around 4500 patients with 5500 procedures.

12 gastroenterologists work out of two procedure rooms, along with 15 anesthetists and a range of support staff.

“We have built up such a positive reputation over the past decade that we definitely attract some of the best doctors in the state here at ACT Endoscopy,” Ms. Cawdell-Smith said.

“Our modern facilities, good equipment, and commitment to our patients really sets us apart.”

Originally opened by four local gastroenterologists in 2012 to cater to the growing endoscopy needs of the ACT and surrounding areas of NSW, ACT Endoscopy then became part of the Cura Day Hospitals Group in 2020.

All four doctors still work out of the facility today. While the hospital staff haven’t been there for quite as long, a few are not far off.

Ms Cawdell-Smith attributes this great retention rate to their team culture.

“We really focus on ensuring our staff feel supported and happy in their role and we place a big emphasis on work-life balance,” she said.

“I believe if our staff are happy that will transfer across to happy, well-looked after patients, and this is our priority.

“We are always striving to grow and do better, so I am excited to see what we achieve in the next decade.”
