Acute Medical Unit

The new St John of God Subiaco Hospital Acute Medical Unit is now open.

For fast hospital admission and one-call referral to experienced specialist physicians, GPs can now refer acutely unwell patients with private hospital cover to the Acute Medical Unit (AMU).

This service is available seven days a week between 8.00am and 8.00pm, and led by on-call physicians, resident medical officers and our highly experienced nurses.

AMU Referrals

To refer a patient please call our nurse and On-Call Physician.

Tel: 1800 SUBIHELP (1800 782 443)

Patients must be approved by the on-call physician before they present to the hospital for admission.

The following clinical exclusions apply:

  • patients awaiting care placement
  • acute abdominal pain
  • GI bleed
  • patients requiring companions for wandering or aggression
  • potential stroke
  • dialysis
  • dyscopia and
  • anyone who has had major primary surgery elsewhere in the last 10 days.

The AMU is not an emergency service but offers patients a streamlined way to access the exceptional care of St John of God Subiaco Hospital.
