Financial performance interactive tool

Explore the data for Australia’s largest public hospitals and their average cost of care, which is the amount of money they spent to deliver a notional ‘average’ hospital service to their acute admitted patients, from 2011–12 to 2013–14. This average cost of care is based not on a hospital’s total costs, but instead on a subset of those costs that can be fairly compared across different hospitals. Acute admitted patients account for the largest proportion of hospital costs nationally.

Data are available for more than 100 public hospitals across Australia. To allow fairer comparisons in this report, the National Health Performance Authority allocated hospitals to one of four peer groups based on a combination of hospital size, type of services provided and similar facilities. Data has been suppressed where costs or the majority of admitted patients are not available or comparable.

This interactive tool complements the Hospital Performance: Costs of acute admitted patients in public hospitals from 2011–12 to 2013–14 report.
