About

St John of God Midland Public Hospital is a 307-bed public hospital providing free hospital services for patients in Perth's east metropolitan and Wheatbelt regions.

The hospital opened on 24 November 2015 replacing the former Swan District Hospital as an expanded general hospital. The Commonwealth and State Governments jointly invested $360 million to build the hospital.

We expect to treat about 29,000 inpatients, 64,000 emergency patients and 102,000 outpatients in our first full year of operations.

The hospital is located in the historic railway workshops precinct, close to the centre of Midland and adjacent to the passenger rail line. It is bounded by Centennial Place, Clayton Street and Lloyd Street in Midland.

We are a division of St John of God Health Care, one of Australia’s leading Catholic health care providers.

Public-private partnershipWA state government partner

Our hospital operates under a public-private partnership (PPP) between the State Government
and St John of God Health Care.

This is the third such arrangement in Western Australia. Elsewhere in Australia the PPP model is well established, where Catholic and other not-for-profit hospitals have provided public health services for many years.

St John of God Health Care's 23 year contract with the State Government represents value for Western Australian taxpayers while ensuring the delivery of high standards of care consistent with or better than other public hospitals.
