About Us

From a small local clinic

Operating for over 20 years, Hope Island Veterinary Surgery was established in 1998. First owned by veterinarian Dr Helen Greensborough, the Surgery was purchased by veterinary group Animal Emergency Australia in mid-2022 upon Dr Helen’s retirement.

Alongside the original team members, Dr Rory Finch is now at the helm of the growing veterinary practice. The team continue to strive to provide life-long veterinary care and treatment to local Hope Island residents and greater Gold Coast area.
