St. John of God Midland Public Hospital celebrates its 2nd anniversary today, marking its contribution to quality public health care and services to the community.

In its first 2 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.

“I congratulate St. John of God Midland Public Hospital for achieving significant milestones in its first 2 years of operation.” Minister for Health Roger Cook said.

“From the moment the doors opened, there has been significant patient demand.”

These Emergency Department presentations represent about 45 % more patients than were treated at the former Swan District Hospital’s Emergency Department.

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.
