Location

The main facility of Fremantle hospital is a historic site and looks out over the nearby fishing boat harbour, the Port of Fremantle and the Indian Ocean. [2]

The hospital is also within walking distance of the Fremantle Markets, and Fremantle Oval, home of the Fremantle Dockers.

By 2014

Due to the planned opening of the Fiona Stanley Hospital in 2014, Fremantle hospital will become a 300 bed hospital focused on services such as mental health, aged care, secondary rehabilitation, palliative care, and planned surgeries.[3] The obstetric and neonatal service, diving and hyperbaric medicine unit, and emergency department currently located in Fremantle hospital will be closed and relocated to Fiona Stanley hospital.[4]
