George Town Hospital and Community Centre

The George Town Hospital and Community Centre provides 15 acute care beds, physiotherapy and visiting allied health services. The hospital and Anne St. Medical Service are co-located next door and work closely together. Admission of a patient to GTH&CC can only occur once accepted by a Rural Medical Practitioner from the Anne St service. Admissions can be acute and sub-acute care and may include post-surgical procedures for ongoing care, chronic medical conditions and palliative care. Admissions can include patients transferred from LGH (Regional hospital),  a private facility or via the General Practice – which offers a 24 hour / 7 day Emergency Service. There is no Emergency Department based at this Hospital, however presentations can and do occur from members of the public that require assistance and triage. We have no Aged Care beds at this facility either, however patients can be accommodated short term whilst awaiting nursing home placement.

The George Town Hospital is also a community service centre and provides the base for East Tamar Community Nursing. The Community services provided on-site include: a child dental clinic, child health clinic, Centacare Counselors, community options worker and Baptcare worker. Visiting specialist services include a continence advisor, osteopath, PHT diabetes team, paediatrician, podiatrist, audiologist, financial counsellor, psychologist, drug and alcohol worker, physiotherapist and a cancer support group. Other services provided include Home Help/Personal Care and Home Maintenance.

It has three bedrooms, a spacious living area, and can comfortably accommodate up to 4 students.
