Our emergency department treats over 110,000 patients each year and supported over 35,000 patients in the Virtual ED.  Northern Health cares for over 97,000 patients admitted to hospital each year (over 35,000 arriving by ambulance) and assists with the delivery of over 3,300 babies.

The Northern Health catchment includes three of the state’s six growth areas: Hume, Whittlesea and Mitchell. The swift development of new suburbs in the north will see our population grow over 74% (more than 290,000 people) by 2036.

Northern Health cares for a diverse community, born in more than 185 countries, who speak over 107 different languages and follow over 90 different religions or beliefs.
