Led by a team of emergency medicine specialists, our Emergency Centre is staffed by experienced doctors, nurses and support personnel, all backed by state-of-the-art equipment.
This includes life-saving critical care resuscitation areas, bedside ultrasound and echocardiography, orthopaedic procedure rooms, a dedicated paediatric assessment room and specialised ear, nose, throat (ENT) and eye equipment. There is also onsite 24-hour expert radiology (imaging including MRI) and pathology services.
Anyone of any age can attend our Emergency Centre – you do not require a referral from your GP. As well as other emergency assistance, we are also committed to providing expert care for all sporting injuries. In fact, our Emergency Centre offers a discount for injuries that occur while playing school or organised sports. Recognised sporting organisations or schools get a reduced out-of-pocket consultation fee of $75* (after Medicare) when they present to our Emergency Centre with a sporting injury.
As a War Memorial Hospital, we are proud to provide care for Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) patients. Also, WorkCover injuries can be expertly assessed and treated at our Emergency Centre and, if required, referred to St Andrew’s leading group of orthopaedic and neurosurgery specialists.
There are no Obstetric or Psychiatric facilities at St Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital. Patients requiring these specialties are advised to present to alternative hospitals with the appropriate services.
