Eastbound Clinic is a group practice located in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne, approximately 20 kilometres from the City.
From the early 1950s, Drs Basser and Eisen operated the medical centre when the area was first subdivided from market gardens. In the early 1960s, Dr Kevin Green and Dr Redford Wright-Smith operated the clinic. Their strong links with the local Catholic community and their support for the local health services was instrumental in the building of Moorabbin Hospital (now an integral part of Southern Health).
In 1996, Dr Alan Molloy, who had worked with Dr Wright-Smith and Dr Green for many years took over the business on their retirement so that Eastbound Clinic could continue to provide high quality medical care to patients and the local community.
Medical practice has undergone a transformation in the last decade. Once it was sufficient to practice from a few rooms in a converted house, without the use of computers, with minimally trained staff and with very basic facilities.
Today, a medical practice must ensure it meets stringent quality control standards, have highly skilled medical staff, business managers, receptionists and nurses. It must also utilise the resources of the latest knowledge in information technology and provide facilities that meet the needs of both patients and practitioner.
In July 2005, after 3 years of careful planning, one of the best equipped, modern medical practices was built. The excellent facilities were further enhanced by the completion in 2013 of additional training rooms, a larger meeting room, waiting room as well as a larger staff kitchen to accommodate our growing staff.
In April 2016, Dr Justine Birchall and Dr Owen Latimer, joined the business as co-directors and co- owners of the clinic, together with Dr Alan Molloy, forming a new partnership: Eastbound Nominees Pty Ltd.
Welcome to the New Eastbound Clinic and the future of successful General Practice.
