Fremantle Hospital

Fremantle Hospital

Update: The emergency department has permanently closed.

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. 

With infrastructure projects totalling more than $19 million underway, Fremantle Hospital is taking  on a new role in the future of WA's health care delivery as Western Australia’s largest specialist hospital.

Ongoing upgrades to the existing building, scheduled until 2020, 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.
