Explore Hospital facilities in the Pilbara
The Pilbara Health Region is organised so that Integrated District Health Services support the smaller hospitals in the region to deliver care and, when required, transfer patients to the more specialised, larger hospitals in Newman, South Hedland and Karratha or metropolitan tertiary hospitals. This level of integration enables the appropriate and safe care of patients in suitably equipped and appropriately resourced facilities, according to the acuity of the patient and allows the patient to receive care closer to home, where possible, and reduce the need to travel to Perth for treatment.
There are three major hospital facilities in the Pilbara region, located in Newman, South Hedland and Karratha. These support smaller regional hospitals in Onslow, Paraburdoo, Roebourne and Tom Price.
Hedland Health Campus
The Hedland Health Campus was opened in 2010 to bring together the majority of health services that were previously spread over a number of sites throughout South Hedland and Port Hedland. The Hedland Health Campus is located in South Hedland and is the health care hub for the Pilbara region, providing Pilbara residents with access to more specialists in one convenient location.
It is a public facility that houses a 24-hour emergency department, an operating suite with two operating theatres, in-patient beds, medical imaging x-ray services, pathology and in-patient pharmacy services. In addition, the Hedland Health Campus provides a range of health services, including a domiciliary care unit, geriatric assessment unit, maintenance renal dialysis unit, obstetric and paediatric services, aged care services, mental health services, drug and alcohol services, outpatient and allied health services such as child health, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech pathology, visiting specialist services and a nursing home care unit.
