With a catchment 10% bigger than the size of Victoria, Mount Isa Hospital now offers a superb rural term for building breadth of experience and practical exposure. The hospital is a Level 4 Specialist Service Base Hospital with a total of 80 beds. Our purpose built, 13 bed ED, and 3 bed short stay sees 29,000 patients a year, 25% of whom are paediatric, and 40% of whom are indigenous. Our patients come from remote communities, both in Queensland and the Northern Territory, mine sites as well patients living in Mt Isa and the surrounding towns. Mount Isa Hospital has general medicine, general surgery, paediatrics, O&G, mental health, and palliative care units. We work closely with RFDS with some of our doctors working for both.
