King Island Hospital and Health Centre

The King Island Hospital & Health Centre and Netherby Home, located at 35 Edward St, Currie, has six acute care beds, emergency and outpatient services. Netherby Home provides permanent residential care; 14 aged care beds providing living-in-place. We also provide respite care for the King Island Community. The centre also coordinates the delivery of a broad range of community services: health promotion, counseling, child health, ante natal clinics, community nursing and day activity centre. It also provides visiting services including physiotherapy, dietician, alcohol and other drugs and mental health services. Visiting medical services include Gynaecologist, Paediatrician, Psychiatrist and Rheumatologist. We are very fortunate to have the services of a private chiropractor, dentist and orthodontist. Recently we participated in a tele-health consultation trial. It is anticipated that in the future this mode of service delivery will become more a part of our lives.

Accommodation is available adjacent to the hospital at the King Island Rural Health Teaching Site (RHTS) and is within walking distance of Currie's shops and services. The RHTS provides high quality self-contained accommodation for three students.
