A premier team supporting our community

A premier team supporting our community
Jack Hayes

We’re all familiar with the saying, “it takes a village to raise a child” … well, the same could be said for running a business during the past few challenging years. For owner and director of Premier Health Partners Paul O’Keefe, he would tell you that “it takes an amazing team to keep a business running!”

Premier Health Partners (PHP) is a family medical and allied health clinic based in the newly established Wominjeka Walk in West Melbourne.

It’s no secret that the past few years have wreaked havoc on most, and that our health professionals and small businesses in particular have been radically impacted.

Paul, who lives locally with his young family,  attributes PHP’s ability to have endured the past few years to his fantastic team of like-minded, passionate, and dedicated staff, admin/reception and practitioners alike.

The team, like most in the healthcare industry, has worked tirelessly to ensure PHP could continue supporting patients and our local community throughout the chaos and uncertainty of the pandemic.

Paul said that he couldn’t be more grateful to and for his team, “my village”, which had navigated the changes, unpredictability, new processes and regulations, and even moving to a new clinic, all while maintaining the level of support and compassion their patients had come to expect.

“We are proud of the strong family and community values that we have developed throughout our practice. Our supportive, collaborative, and nurturing culture has helped us all get through,” he said.

As we look towards a brighter future easing into the post-pandemic “new normal”, PHP is excited by future growth and opportunities within its family clinic.

Paul shared proudly that his “team’s dedication hasn’t waned, [its] practitioners’ passion hasn’t faded, and [the] clinic’s commitment to supporting the community has never been stronger.”

PHP continues to welcome new practitioners and services to its team, stressing a commitment to providing holistic healthcare to all. The cooperative environment at PHP encourages patients to seek the most appropriate care for their specific needs.

The practitioner team currently includes an osteopath, a myotherapist, exercise physiologists, three general practitioners, and a clinic nurse. They have also partnered with off-site practitioners including a speech pathologist, an occupational therapist, and a psychologist to provide further support for patients.

Premier Health Partners recently relocated into a stunning new clinic featuring purpose-built spaces for practitioner services, as well as beautiful open waiting areas, and a striking reception space.

Aptly located on the impressive Wominjeka Way, the clinic is a welcoming space with a warm and compassionate reception team ready to greet you and support you in getting the best healthcare and support for you and your family (plus, there is free parking available too!).

So yes, it takes a village to raise a child, and so too, it takes an amazing team to keep a business running through a pandemic … how lucky we are to have access to both in our wonderful north-west pocket of this great city. •
