St John of God Midland Public Hospital celebrates its second anniversary today, marking its contribution to quality public health care and services to the community.
In its first two years, there have been more than 128,100 Emergency Department presentations, 175,100 outpatient appointments, 3,380 births and nearly 19,700 procedures at the hospital.
These Emergency Department presentations represent about 45 per cent more patients than were treated at the former Swan District Hospital’s Emergency Department.
The busiest day for the Emergency Department since opening occurred on August 28, 2017, during the peak winter period, when 232 people were treated.
Since its opening, the hospital’s Community Services Centre has also been a hub for local health agencies, community service providers and patient support groups, providing important outreach and in-reach services to patients.
As a key part of the East Metropolitan Health Service, the hospital has formed a number of partnerships with other public hospitals, community health, social services and support organisations. These partnerships ensure patients have access to comprehensive health care before, during and after their hospital stay.
Models of care have also been developed with specialists in Aboriginal health and a strong relationship with local Aboriginal medical services and indigenous community groups.
