St John of God Midland Public and Private Hospitals is a health care facility in Midland, Western Australia which opened in November 2015.[1]

St John of God Health Care built and operates the hospitals under a public-private partnership with the Western Australian state government. St John of God Midland Public Hospital has replaced the nearby Swan District Hospital.[1]

St John of God Midland Public and Private Hospitals are divisions of St John of God Health Care, a Catholic not-for-profit health care group, serving communities with hospitals, home nursing, and social outreach services throughout Australia, New Zealand and the wider Asia-Pacific region.[2]

History[edit]

Since 1954 the Midland area has been served by Swan District Hospital, which initially opened as a maternity hospital, and expanded to a general hospital in 1963.[3] The hospital was further developed in 1971 and 2001.[3]

In September 2005, the then Health Minister Jim McGinty announced that the hospital would be upgraded to a 326-bed general hospital, either through redevelopment of the existing campus, or construction of a new campus in Midland.[4] He confirmed in November 2005 that a new hospital would be built at the site of the former Midland Railway Workshops.[5]

In March 2010 Health Minister Kim Hames confirmed that the new $360 million Midland Health Campus would be provided by a private operator, under a public-private partnership.[6][7] Expressions of interest were called for in October 2010,[8] with St John of God Health Care announced as the campus operator on 14 June 2012.[9] St John of God Health Care's plan included a 60-bed private hospital, which some shared services with a 307-bed public hospital.[9]

Construction began in August 2012, and is expected to be completed by 2015.[10]The hospital opened on 24 November 2015 with Swan District Hospital closing at the same time.[1]

Curtin University plans to open a new medical school to be based near St John of God Midland Public and Private Hospitals.[11]
