Serving the community

The North West Regional Hospital at Burnie is a modern 160-bed facility that provides high quality healthcare and specialist services to North West Tasmania and King Island.

It offers services in medical, surgical and allied health specialties through inpatient and outpatient departments.

The hospital caters for the emergency resuscitation, surgery and intensive care of most trauma patients and other medical conditions.

Because the North West Regional Hospital is a secondary level service, we transfer patients to comprehensive tertiary hospitals for some injuries and illnesses.
