The MyHospitals website provides nationally consistent, locally relevant information that allows fair comparisons to be made at the level of individual hospitals or health services (i.e. SA2, SA3 or Primary Health Networks).

The MyHospitals website allows you to view the performance of more than 1,000 public and private hospitals against indicators such as waiting times in emergency departments or for some types of surgery, rates of bloodstream infections acquired in hospital, the length of time patients spend in hospital after being admitted for various conditions or procedures, and other indicators.
