Who are we?

The Tasmanian Health Service is an innovative and dynamic organisation dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of our community. We are committed to providing the highest levels of healthcare and services.

The medical services across the North West region of Tasmania are based primarily at the North West Regional Hospital (NWRH) in Burnie and at the Mersey Community Hospital (MCH) in Latrobe close to Devonport.

The department of Medicine has a team of eight general medicine physicians across the region currently providing general medicine services. Six of the physicians have sub-specialties/interests in cardiology, geriatrics, nephrology and endocrinology.

The two hospitals both have busy emergency and general surgical departments. Both Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Paediatrics are primarily located at the NWRH with outpatient services at both sites. There are anaesthetic services provided at both sites however primarily based at NWRH. A busy orthopaedic service is at NWRH. A rehabilitation service is located in a purpose built ward at the MCH. There are extensive outpatient services for a range of sub-specialty services many of which are provided by visiting specialists from Launceston General Hospital, Royal Hobart Hospital and major hospitals in Victoria. There is also an eight bed Intensive Care unit located at NWRH. Onsite support services in pathology, imaging and pharmacy are extensive.

The North West Cancer Centre (NWCC) operates as a branch of the Northern Tasmania Cancer Service and it is linked with the Holman Centre in Launceston. The NWCC provides integrated oncology services to patients who live in North West Tasmania.

The North West Private Hospital is co-located with the North West Regional Hospital and this facilitates private practice for many of the region's specialists.

The North West Rural Clinical School of the University of Tasmania is located on the campus of the NWRH and the MCH. The Tasmanian Health Service – North West participates in a comprehensive undergraduate and graduate clinical training program with the Rural Clinical School.

The rugged and beautiful North West Coast of Tasmania is a tourist mecca, has a strong agricultural sector, a developing innovative industrial sector and is positioned with airports and sea transport so it is very accessible to the rest of Tasmania and the Australian mainland.
