The future of the Repatriation General Hospital site
The Repatriation General Hospital provides high quality services, but many of the current public hospital facilities are outdated and cannot provide all of the spaces, equipment and layout needed for modern medical treatments. Implementing changes through Transforming Health will see most clinical and rehabilitation services currently provided at the Repatriation General Hospital transitioned to other metropolitan hospitals or locations. These changes will not happen immediately but will result in the public hospital components of the Repatriation General Hospital site facilities becoming vacant.
For more information on this, including the Registration of Interest and Expression of Interest processes, see the Future of the Repatriation General Hospital site page.
