Gold City Medical Centre
Caring for your Health
Gold City Medical Centre has been caring for the health of the Charters Towers community for over 30 years. All our doctors live in our community or within the surrounding rural area.
We have expanded from a one doctor practice in 1985 to an eight doctor practice with five nurses, numerous visiting allied health providers and specialists in 2016. Our purpose build surgery was designed and built in 1993 and expanded into the heritage building next door in 2013.
Our practice aim is to provide the highest quality medical care as courteously and effectively as possible. We provide a comprehensive range of General Practice health services from childhood immunisations and treatment of common childhood illnesses through to chronic diseases like diabetes and the care of our elderly in Charters Towers. Teaching is an important part of our General Practice philosophy and students enhance the vibrant nature of our practice.
