In 1988 Dr Barry Hopkins and Dr Brian Lloyd relocated their private cardiology consulting rooms to St John of God Healthcare, Subiaco. Later that same year Dr Mark Hands, joined and St John of God Cardiology was established as the first hospital-based private cardiology practice in Western Australia. In 1991 Dr Eric Whitford joined and a 24 hour on-call private cardiology service was complemented by noninvasive testing, including the first colour flow Doppler echocardiogram studies offered in private practice in Western Australia.
Dr Mark Hands took over chairmanship of the practice in 1992 and continued his leadership until June 2020. In January 1995 the practice relocated to the southwest corner of the hospital and expanded its services to Joondalup, Busselton and Mirrabooka. In 1997, St John of God Cardiology became Western Cardiology.
In July 2006, Dr Luigi D’Orsogna formally joined the practice to provide a complete paediatric cardiology service.
Earlier in 2006, Western Cardiology relocated to new purpose-built rooms at the on-site medical clinic at St John of God Hospital, Subiaco on McCourt Street, where the practice continues today, along with numerous suburban and regional clinics.
In July 2020 Dr Paul Stobie assumed chairmanship of Western Cardiology, leading the practice into the future with high quality, innovative heart care.
