Blacktown & Mount Druitt Hospitals

About Blacktown & Mount Druitt hospitals

Blacktown & Mount Druitt hospitals (BMDH) are located in western Sydney and comprises shared health services located on two separate campus locations at Blacktown and Mount Druitt.

Services are distributed across the two campuses, with each playing a complementary role in providing committed and high quality healthcare services at a district hospital level (C1 at Mt Druitt) and major metropolitan level (B1 at Blacktown Campus.)

BMDH is a unit of the West Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) governed by the NSW Ministry of Health.  Although there are two inpatient campuses, it operates under one administration under the umbrella of Blacktown Mt Druitt Hospital.  Clinical Services are distributed across both campuses, allowing for the growth of expertise within specialities. The two facilities are situated 11 kilometres apart.

To ensure that local access through optimal and safe clinical care can be provided, the two campuses are supported by established transport systems and medical specialists’ models of care.

BMDH services communities from Blacktown, Mount Druitt and Riverstone Local Government Areas (LGAs) and an additional inflow of residents from surrounding LGAs including Parramatta, Holroyd, Hawkesbury, Penrith and Fairfield.

Blacktown Mount Druitt Hospital’s medical leadership is established through its links with the University of Western Sydney Clinical School and the University of Sydney.

As one of the main teaching facilities for the University of Western Sydney (UWS) Clinical School of Medicine, the hospital recently opened the UWS Blacktown/Mt Druitt Clinical School, Research and Education Centre on the Blacktown Hospital campus.

The Hospital has a continuing focus on meeting the healthcare needs of local residents, including emergency services, on each campus. The ongoing development and future directions of service delivery across both BMDH campuses encompasses a broad range of service and facility development proposals.
