Serving Launceston and surrounding areas
Welcome to the Launceston General Hospital (LGH). We provide inpatient and ambulatory services to Launceston and surrounding areas.
As an accredited teaching hospital, LGH has a close partnership with the University of Tasmania through the Launceston Clinical School and the School of Nursing and Midwifery based in Launceston.
Research and innovation is encouraged and supported throughout the hospital with research sponsored by the Clifford Craig Medical Research Trust.
In 2004-05, our 308-overnight and 41 day-only bed hospital provided 32,374 inpatient separations (when a patient leaves because of death, discharge, sign-out against medical advice or is transfered) and 224,235 outpatient occasions of service.
In addition, the hospital dealt with 30,931 emergency presentations.
As the largest employer in the region, LGH employs about 1346 full time equivalent staff.
Our staff are committed to providing quality services in a culture of respect and trust with high levels of professionalism and a focus on performance and achieving results.
Our focus is on teamwork within the hospital and also with our community providers.
We encourage community participation and feedback about our services.
