The Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital

icon The 2013 Statewide emergency department patient satisfaction survey revealed the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital (RBWH) had the highest level of patient satisfaction among adult hospitals in Queensland.
icon Queensland's only public hospital Milk Bank is located at the RBWH. In its first year of operation the Milk Bank pasteurised over 500 litres of milk, well above the 320 litre target. It is now expanding to feed premature babies at the Mater Mother's Hospital.
icon In 2013, the RBWH launched a new midwifery model allowing women who are booked to give birth the option to see an accredited private midwife for their antenatal and postnatal care.
icon Australia's first Across the Lifespan 3D Motional Analysis Centre opened in February 2014. The centre will dramatically improve outcomes for patients with movement disorders.
icon Construction began in 2013 on the Herston Imaging Research Facility which will provide a dedicated facility for research. Completion of construction is due in July 2014.
icon The RBWH installed the world's first continuous flow PET-CT scanner which reduces scanning time by 30 per cent, improves image clarity and provides a better patient experience.
icon The number of long wait surgical patients has been reduced by around 68 per cent during 2013 thanks to list reduction strategies.
