SKG Radiology is recognised for excellence in providing consistent, caring and professional services to referring practitioners and patients, utilising advanced, state‐of‐the‐art imaging technology.
SKG Radiology traces its history back to August 1981, when Dr Paul Sprague established a radiology practice at 30 Ord Street, West Perth. In 1986, Doctors Andrew Kam and John Glancy joined him, and the Sprague Kam Glancy Partnership was formed. The Partnership developed to include 20 Radiologist partners who owned and managed SKG Radiology.
In November 2001, SKG Radiology joined Sonic Healthcare Limited – a major medical diagnostics company providing laboratory and radiology services to medical practitioners, hospitals, community health services, and patients. Sonic Healthcare is a public company, listed as a Top 100 company on the Australian Stock Exchange. The group comprises of pathology and radiology services throughout Australia, New Zealand, Europe and North America. SKG Radiology is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sonic Healthcare, but retains its local business identity and operational autonomy.
SKG Radiology has now grown to employ over 600 people encompassing Radiologists, technical, nursing and clerical staff. At SKG, we believe that our people are our most valuable asset and our success is due to the quality of service they provide.
