The Northern Hospital

Referral/Teaching Hospital | Melbourne , Australia

Hospital description

The Northern Hospital was founded in 1998 and is one of Melbourne’s major acute treatment centres. The 300-bed hospital is situated in Epping, a suburb of Melbourne and serves the northern suburbs of Melbourne and the surrounding country areas of Victoria. In 2007 the hospital received a major upgrade, which has caused the number of patients to increase each year.

The hospital’s Emergency Department is the busiest in the state, treating nearly 70,000 patients annually whilst exceeding many government-mandated waiting time targets. The Emergency Department is served by a helipad and ambulances and is supplemented by an After Hours GP Clinic, which is open until midnight during the week and 10pm at weekends.
