Canberra’s northside acute public hospital and Clare Holland House hospice operations in Australia have transitioned to Canberra Health Services, creating an integrated public hospital system in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).

Formerly known as Calvary Public Hospital Bruce, the hospital will now be called North Canberra Hospital.

Its services will remain the same while its staff will also be retained.

The consolidation of services aims to enhance coordination, resource allocation, and hospital load distribution, ultimately benefiting all aspects of Canberra’s public healthcare, including maternity, paediatric, and emergency services.

This transition has involved the employment transfer of 1,781 employees, including the entire executive team.

Canberra Health Services CEO Dave Peffer said: “Today marks an important day for health care in the ACT, the biggest change we’ve seen in a decade.
