The MyHospitals website is moving on 31 March 2020

Don’t worry – from December 11 2019 you can find the latest information about your local area on the MyHospitals webpages on the AIHW website, along with many more reports and data on a range of health and welfare topics.

In some cases, the way you find information has changed. If you need help finding anything, please contact the AIHW.

Once the website has moved, you will be able to access old archived versions of the previously published data through Trove, the National Library of Australia’s web archive. Please note the interactive content will not work in the archived version.

Compare hospitals

Choose one of the topics below to see interactive charts and tools that allow you to see how public hospitals compare against other hospitals across Australia.

For some measures you can view how a hospital performs over a number of years. You can also choose to compare a hospital within its own peer group, which contain other public hospitals with similar characteristics, such as size and distance from cities.

These comparison tools do not include private hospitals.
