Australian Enterprise Awards 2021

13 APAC / Australian Enterprise Awards 2021 , Established in 2017, Armstrong Health aim to create a unique health hub by catering to all health and wellbeing needs including general practice, integrative medicine, medical aesthetics, nutritional medicine, medical acupuncture, and allied health services. To start, Dr Qutub provides a brief overview of the clinic and offers more insight into its patients. “As a smart health clinic, we work towards the emotional and physical health and wellbeing of individuals and families in Armstrong Creek, Geelong, and nearby areas. Naturally, our goal is to provide holistic healthcare services by establishing lifelong relationships with all our patients. In a comfortable environment, patients can expect personalised treatment, consultations, testing, counselling, and post treatment care. Beyond this, our services include preventive medicine as well as treatment of acute and chronic conditions.” Across Geelong the clinic often faces a number of competitors, however as Dr Qutub goes on to explain, its approach to patients has ensured Armstrong Health remains the region’s number one choice for general health and wellness services. “Rather than adopting a one-size-fits-all approach, we believe in our patient-centred methods which we incorporate into our practice. Two-minute medicine is not the way forward, instead we take a holistic approach towards patient concerns and our management plans.” Since its inception, a people-focused working environment has ensured all staff members are able to deliver outstanding health services as Dr Qutub points out. “Here at Armstrong Health, everyone feels like they are part of one big happy family. Naturally then, this has led to a highly collaborative working environment where every individual feels valued. In turn this has given all staff members the confidence to communicate freely at all levels.” Despite the outbreak of COVID-19, Armstrong Health have adapted well to the situation as Dr Qutub explains further. “ The pandemic was a big change for everyone. However, we managed to adapt and are very proud of the fact that we did not close our doors to the community even in the midst of the pandemic. While the medical centres around us were only running telehealth consultations, we kept our doors open by taking the necessary precautions. In particular, doing COVID-19 swabs proved to be very beneficial to our business and the local community.” Best General Health & Wellness Clinic - Geelong As the first medical centre in Armstrong Creek, Armstrong Health provide a range of health services to its patients here in Geelong.
