Private Hospitals are a vital part of Australia’s health care system and we do so much more than many Australians realise. Every day we save lives and improve the quality of life of our patients.
Without private hospitals many Australians won’t get the care they need when they need it.
We provide 40% of all hospital treatment in Australia treating 3.74 million Australians annually.
We offer 98% of the same procedures and treatments offered in public hospitals.
We conduct 66% of elective surgery; perform almost half of the cardiac surgery undertaken in Australia and the majority of hip and knee replacements and in-hospital chemotherapy, and more.
Importantly, we offer choice and timely access to health care.
About the Valuing Private Hospitals campaign
The Valuing Private Hospitals campaign is a platform for patients and families, staff and health professionals and the Australian community to share why they value private hospitals and help us dispel the myths that exist.
Together our voices can make a difference in demonstrating the vital role of private hospitals in Australia’s hospital system so please join us in voicing your support. Through this website, you can find out more about what private hospitals do, find out more about the Campaign and add your message on why you value private hospitals.
