The MyHospitals website is moving on 31 March 2020

Don’t worry – from December 11 2019 you will be able to 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 new MyHospitals website has been created, 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.

Emergency department

This section shows data related to presentations (visits) to this hospital’s emergency department. Each visit is counted separately, so the number of presentations may not be equal to the number of people seen or treated by the emergency department if some people visited more than once. Here, ‘patients’ refers to the number of presentations.

This section shows the percentage of patients arriving at this hospital’s emergency department who commenced treatment within the maximum recommended time. Recommended maximum waiting times vary depending on the urgency of the patient's need for care (their triage category), as assessed by a healthcare professional in the emergency department. The five triage categories are called: Resuscitation, Emergency, Urgent, Semi-urgent and Non-urgent.

Resuscitation waiting time (requires treatment immediately)

In 2017–18, 100% of resuscitation patients were treated immediately upon arrival (within 2 minutes) at the emergency department of this hospital.
