On 16 April 2014, the ACCC announced that it would not oppose Healthe Care’s proposed acquisition of Brisbane Waters Private Hospital from Healthscope Limited.  The ACCC concluded that the proposed acquisition was unlikely to substantially lessen competition in the markets for both private hospital services to patients in the NSW Central Coast area and private hospital services to health funds and the Repatriation Commission.

In 2006, the ACCC had opposed a proposal by Healthe Care to acquire Brisbane Waters Private Hospital after finding that Healthscope's Brisbane Waters Private Hospital and Healthe Care's Gosford Private Hospital competed closely with each other to attract the services and referrals of medical specialists in the relevant market. 

In its most recent review, the ACCC found that the services offered by Brisbane Waters Private Hospital had changed since 2006 such that they were now significantly different to those offers by Healthe Care’s Gosford Private Hospital and the two hospitals were no longer competitors and were unlikely to become competitors in the future.
