Heart HQ

Nurse Practitioner

Heart HQ’s Silvia Gres is here to help Sunshine Coast GPs, their patients and their families.

Supporting our patients

Heart HQ’s Heart Murmur Clinic has a new face: Silvia Gres.

Previously Nurse Manager of Cardiac Services and the Coronary Care Unit at SCUPH, Silvia joined the Heart HQ team to extend her support for Sunshine Coast GPs and their patients.

Silvia will work alongside Drs Larsen and Butterly at SCUPH and Heart HQ to assess patients in the cardiology ward and provide clinical review and comprehensive education before and after cardiac procedures. This will include coronary angiograms, PCI and structural heart interventions such as TAVI, LAAC and MitraClip.

She will also assess and manage patients in the Heart Murmur Clinic and follow up patients in her own clinic at Heart HQ Central at Sippy Downs.

Silvia was the first interventional cardiology nurse practitioner to be credentialled by Ramsay in Australia.

A career dedicated to cardiac care

Born in Slovakia, Silvia moved to New York in 1996 to obtain her nursing degree and she practised as an RN and nurse practitioner for over a decade. She contributed to many cardiac projects and protocols that continue to improve healthcare quality for patients before, during and after their hospital stay.

She continued creating new pathways for cardiac services when she moved to the Sunshine Coast and joined Ramsay in 2017.

While collaborating with the Heart HQ team on various cardiac projects and procedures through SCUPH, Silvia found her dedicated, forward-thinking approach to patient care aligned with Heart HQ’s progressive vision.

Silvia’s passion is to build a better healthcare service for patients on the Sunshine Coast so they receive the world-class cardiac service their hearts deserve.
Outside of cardiology, Silvia’s passions include dance, piano and a powerful hunger for knowledge.

She’s always dreamed of making a difference—and through her role with Heart HQ’s GP referrers and their patients, she’s continuing to pursue this dream.
