Fremantle Hospital

Fremantle Hospital

Home to the second-oldest healthcare facility in the State, Fremantle has undergone a massive transformation since the hospital first opened its doors in 1897.

Like the local population, Fremantle Hospital has significantly grown in size and for many years it has served as the major public hospital for Perth’s south, taking care of patients around the clock. 

As Fiona Stanley prepares to open, Fremantle Hospital will be benefiting from a series of infrastructure projects totalling more than $19 million, as it prepares to take on a new role in the future of WA's health care delivery.

Recent investment, including a new roof, enhanced technology and upgrades to key facilities, is enabling the hospital to continue delivering a broad range of services and high-level care.

With the opening of the new Fiona Stanley Hospital, Fremantle will change to a specialist facility.

Ongoing upgrades to the existing building will ensure the right facilities are in place to enable Fremantle Hospital to concentrate on meeting the growing demand for elective surgery and services important to the local community by 2020.
