PHMC's Core Values!
At Paul Hopkins Medical Clinic we have designed 3 Core Values that resonate with our team.
Family: The Best Part of Life
Our nurses and support team are part of your family's journey through life - often from birth until the end. We believe family is the most important thing in each of our lives - that includes our patients' families, our staff's families, our “not-really-family” families and our work family. This belief drives our passion to do what is right for everyone.
Respect: Driving Team Culture
Fundamentally our team is our backbone. We treasure each other and know that each and every one of us plays a key role in supporting the doctors that work from our complex to provide top healthcare to our community and keep PHMC running. Working in healthcare can mean we are often on the receiving end of disrespect and abuse; this is why it is so important to our team to respect each other and all visitors to our facilities. This helps our team to be safe and appreciated for their dedication, and of course helps us have heaps of fun while doing it!
Empathy: From empathy, comes everything.
Motivated by empathy, we are driven to provide the best all-round care to everyone.
The world is huge and moves so fast, it is easy to get lost in the moment. In these unprecedented times our team encourages everyone to engage in empathy. We know how important it is to understand where we each are in moments of heightened emotion. From empathy comes respect, honesty, openness and many more vital human values. We believe that if everyone engaged in empathy, the world would feel a little bit easier and less stressful.
Dr Paul Hopkins started his practice on the corner of Gordon and Brisbane Street in 1926. Since that date, Paul Hopkins Medical has been a huge part of the Mackay community and grown into the complex it is today; providing clean, safe and top-of-the-line facilities for doctors and allied health to practice medicine from.
Paul Hopkins Medical Complex provides clinical facilities, administrative management and nursing support to health professionals in order for them to provide comprehensive care to the Mackay & the surrounding community. The doctors and allied-health that engage our services have the same interests at heart. These health professionals that offer their services out of our facilities ensure to keep up to date on the latest medical findings and developments and look after their own health to ensure they stay at the top of their game.
The PHMC team believe in a holistic approach to healthcare - even though the doctors that work here are independent practitioners, we work together to ensure that we are working towards to same goals.
Holistic care involves an interest in all aspects of a person’s health, i.e. social, mental, emotional & physical. Great emphasis is placed on preventative health care:
“prevention is better than cure”
Evidence has shown that leading a healthy lifestyle can prevent illness and improve your quality of life. A regular preventative health check can outline areas of concern, or define changes in lifestyle needed to prevent illness.
Are you an independent doctor or allied-health professional with your own business looking for a new facility to practice medicine from?
