Hospital 1 
The Department of Emergency Medicine, also known as the Emergency Department or ED, is a busy department attending 35,000 patients annually. The ED has 20 treatment areas including 4 consulting rooms, a plaster room, an eye room, 12 general cubicles and 2 resuscitation beds. The ED is the regional Trauma Centre for Northeast Victoria and the NSW catchment area. The ED also receives all orthopaedic cases for the NSW catchment area and Northeast Victoria.

Hospital 2
The Emergency Department sees 32,000 patients annually with approximately 2,350 admitted from the Department to the Acute Hospital. The ED has 8 treatment areas with a capacity to house 12 patients and there are also 2 resuscitation rooms. The ED treats all Obstetric Emergencies.
Waiting Times- All patients are seen immediately they arrive by a triage nurse. The triage nurse assesses the urgency of each patient. Urgent life-threatening cases will always be given priority and treatment started immediately. For this reason, it is impossible to estimate waiting times, as the arrival of such cases is unpredictable and beyond the control of the staff.
