Our co-founders are healthcare professionals with extensive experience working in Australian and overseas hospitals. They personally understand how challenging it can be for people travelling long distances to hospitals.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of Australians require specialist medical care for procedures ranging from hip or knee replacements, through to highly specialised heart operations, organ transplants and specialist cancer therapies.
News of a serious medical condition can be devastating for patients and their loved ones. For people having to travel for medical care, the added complexity of finding a safe and suitable place to stay and arranging transport, car-parking and meals away from home can be overwhelming and stressful.
And, until now, many people were having to rely on holiday websites to find suitable accommodation at this difficult time in their lives.
To solve this problem, our founders created MediStays, a social enterprise dedicated to supporting people on a medical journey.
MediStays has been developed in close collaboration with a dedicated and innovative team of healthcare and business professionals, not-for-profit organisations, government departments, privately operated and commercial accommodation providers.
As a team, we bring combined experience from several of Australia’s leading public and private hospitals in both metropolitan and regional medical centres, accommodation and hospitality industries.
We understand the importance of high quality, evidence-based healthcare and we passionate about supporting people on a medical journey.
