Our History

Joondalup Health Campus (JHC) was established in June 1996 when the Western Australian Government appointed Health Care of Australia to operate the existing Wanneroo Hospital and transform it into a modern health care facility. The original Wanneroo Hospital opened in August 1980 with 85 beds.

More than four decades on, the hospital has now evolved into the major sub-tertiary health care facility it is today. The 732-bed campus is comprised of a standalone 150-bed private hospital and a co-located hospital that provides services to public patients living in its catchment area.

JHC is managed by Ramsay Health Care, the biggest private hospital operator in Australia.

Under a public private partnership with the State Government, which currently runs until 2043, JHC is required to report regularly to the North Metropolitan Health Service on a range of performance indicators, including Emergency Department (ED) waiting times, surgical waitlists, safety and quality, and complaints.

At JHC, we are proud of our history and look forward to continuing to grow with our community to provide excellent health care.
