Rockingham General Hospital is a public hospital in Rockingham, Western Australia, in the south west of the Perth Metropolitan Region. The 18-hectare (44-acre) hospital was originally known as Rockingham Kwinana District Hospital, but was renamed in 2008 during a major redevelopment. The 229-bed hospital has an emergency department, operating theatres, and medical, surgical and paediatric wards. There are also aged care rehabilitation, intensive care, chemotherapy, and obstetrics units.

History

A 64-bed hospital was proposed for the Kwinana and Rockingham areas in 1954, following population growth due to the development of the Kwinana Refinery.

A major redevelopment to upgrade the district hospital to a larger general hospital began in June 2007. The first phase was the construction of a new building, completed in October 2008; the second phase involved renovating the existing building. A significant portion of the second phase was completed by September 2009, and the project was completed in September 2010 with the opening of new chemotherapy and maternity units.
