Emergency Department Presentations

Our five emergency departments, of which two are publicly funded and three privately funded, dramatically increased their activity in 2016/17 due to the full-year impact of St John of God Midland Private and Public Hospitals and Hawkesbury District Health Service. Total presentations were up 40.1%, reflecting our public hospital increase of 72.6% and private hospital increase of 0.2%. St John of God Midland Public Hospital is, within 18 months of opening, one of the busiest public emergency departments in Australia, having had 66,619 presentations during the year.
