Macquarie Medical Imaging (MMI) and MQ Health are excited to announce that they will be merging with the purpose of improving the overall quality and accuracy of patient care. They will merge effective 7th December 2019, with MMI still retaining its brand name, under the MQ Health overarching banner. MQ Health is a comprehensive provider of medical services, while MMI provides best-in-class imaging and interpretation. Together, they will be able to better serve patients, improve their lives and outcomes, and streamline the services delivered through the Macquarie University Hospital system.
Better Services through Working Together
MMI and MQ Health already work in similar spaces, leveraging research and technology to improve their patients’ lives.
MMI has a focus on imaging and interpretation, while MQ Health has a strong basis in integrated clinical care, research, and learning. As both are located within the Macquarie University Hospital system, they will be able to further leverage each other’s knowledge and resources to provide quality patient-centred care.
This merger will ensure MMI and MQ Health work as an integrated entity, with greater access to programs and technology and improved efficiency and reduced overhead, which ultimately provides better services for their clients, collaborative research projects, and more advanced clinical trials.
Better Access to a Larger Variety of Clinics, Services, and Programs
MQ Health aims to always put the patient first, supporting them with evidence-driven research and learning. MQ Health prioritises caring, integrity, teamwork, ambition, innovation, and engagement, and strives to be a world-class university health sciences centre.

Dedicated to improving patients’ lives, MQ Health takes pride in its programs.

MMI patients will gain access to this comprehensive network of healthcare and will consequently be able to see better patient outcomes.
