Emerald Hospital

icon The Emerald Hospital provides a range of health services to the community, including 24-hours a day, seven days a week emergency department, inpatient and outpatient care.
icon The Emerald Hospital has developed a training program in partnership with a local General Practitioner for rural generalist doctors. Six doctors have signed on to undertake the training for their specialist qualifications. This is building a qualified and stable medical workforce for the future.
icon Telehealth services are available to link specialist staff at other hospitals via video-conferencing, which means suitable patients no longer have to travel long distances for appointments.

The Emerald Hospital has undergone an $8 million Rural Rectification Works Project which includes essential fire safety repairs, asbestos removal, and the replacement of the emergency generator and air conditioner chillers.

Capital works or recent improvements

The Rural and Remote Infrastructure Refurbishment Project works commenced in mid-2013 and focussed on the upgrade of aged and non-compliant infrastructure elements such as power supply, hydraulics, medical gases, fire services, disability access and a minor redesign and refurbishment of the emergency department.  These works were completed mid-2014.
