This 165-bed hospital is the specialist referral centre for Central Australia providing services across an area of 1 million square kilometres, equivalent to the size of NSW. The hospital provides general speciality services in most areas including day procedure, emergency, intensive care and high dependency, maternity, medical, outpatients, paediatric, surgical, and mental health services.
The nearest referral hospitals are some 1,500 kilometres distant. Because of the relative isolation the hospital services must be able to handle most medical situations. The hospital has a very busy Emergency Department with 35,000 presentations per year.

Not only known for its stunning surrounding landscapes, Alice Springs also offers a relaxed and friendly, small town mentality. Everything is in close proximity, with everything just a 10-minute drive away, including schools, markets, festivals and sporting events that the town frequently holds.
