Procedures

Overnight patient procedures grew 3.3%, much lower than separations growth of 8.7% because our public hospitals have a much lower proportion of procedures for overnight patients (29% of public overnight separations have procedures as compared with 63% of private overnight separations). Day patient procedure growth was 7.4%. An equivalent proportion of private and public same day patients have procedures (61% private, 60% public).
