Dr Andrew Hill completed medicine at the University of Sydney, graduating with second-class honours in 1987. Cardiology training occurred at Prince Henry Hospital in 1993 and 1994. Extra training was done in all aspects of cardiac ultrasound, culminating in a Diploma of Diagnostic Ultrasound (DDU). Dr Andrew Hill commenced employment at Gosford Hospital as a Staff Specialist Cardiologist and established the transoesophageal echocardiogram service in 1995.
Dr Hill was a founding proceduralist at Brisbane Waters Private Hospital Cardiac Angiography Unit, established in 1996. Through to 2020 Dr Andrew Hill has (through Central Coast facilities) completed over 4000 percutaneous coronary interventions, making Dr Hill the longest established procedural cardiologist on the Central Coast, NSW. Dr Hill also established the Cardiac Angiography Unit at Gosford Hospital in 2002, requiring political lobbying and training of nursing staff. Dr Andrew Hill recruited additional cardiologists to support Coronary Artery Interventions and Coronary Artery Angiograms initially performed by himself from September 2002 onwards. This remains in place.
Dr Hill has ongoing interventional appointments at Gosford Hospital and Gosford Private Hospital, including a preference for radial artery approaches. This is associated with quicker patient recovery and less bleeding. Apart from coronary angiography, coronary intervention, stent insertion and transoesophageal echocardiography, Dr Hill is a clinician, an educator for advanced trainees through Gosford and Wyong Hospitals and remains integrated with Central Coast Health, including ongoing on-call duties at both Gosford and Wyong Hospitals.
Dr Hill, through the Jarrett Street Specialist Centre, provides follow up and clinical review to outpatients and arranges, as well as reviews, standard echocardiography studies, Holter monitors and medical histories relating to cardiology. Through his consulting rooms, HeartBug monitoring is performed, as well as organising coronary angiograms, coronary intervention, cardiac ultrasound, exercise stress testing and patient reviews.
Dr Hill was the principle investigator for the GUSTO 4, Valiant, HERO2, TEMAMI and other benchmark trials.
