The services, provided through purpose-built mobile clinics known as Heart Trucks, include vital healthcare such as heart monitoring, respiratory therapy and sleep studies.
Heart of Australia, which has treated more than 16,000 patients across 43 communities and saved 600 lives since its establishment in 2014, will conduct the visits next month.
Dr. Rolf Gomes, Founder and Director of Heart of Australia, credited partners like Arrow Energy for enabling direct delivery of specialists and diagnostic equipment to patients.
“As our Foundation Partner, Arrow Energy has played a pivotal role from the clinic’s inception in helping Heart of Australia to expand and reach more rural and remote communities,” Dr Gomes said.
“With their support, thousands of rural Australians have gained access to the care they need.
“I encourage anyone in Dalby, Miles or Moranbah to talk to their general practitioner to determine if a visit to the Heart Clinic would be beneficial for their healthcare needs.”
Arrow CEO Godson Njoku said the company was proud to support Heart of Australia's mission to provide essential services to rural and remote communities, particularly those where Arrow Energy operates.
“Arrow has deep connections to the communities of Dalby, Miles and Moranbah, which is why we’re delighted to work with Rolf and his team and be a part of the Heart of Australia journey,” Godson said.
“Recognising the disparity in medical support between Queensland's rural and urban areas, Arrow partnered with Heart of Australia to establish Australia's first mobile cardiology and respiratory clinic.
““It’s wonderful to see the program's continued growth, with five custom-built mobile clinics now extending their reach across nearly every corner of the state.”
