Member Benefits

Peak body 

Day Hospitals Australia is recognised as the Peak Body for the day hospital sector and continues to actively and strategically advocate, lobby, represent and support our extensive membership base consisting of small, medium and large day hospital facilities across the country.  Our active profile within the industry ensures that we have strong relationships at a state and federal government level.

Members are represented by Day Hospitals Australia on multiple Working Groups across the country providing us with the opportunity to contribute, impact and influence the direction of key activities within the industry.  Often this requires member involvement in the form of survey/data collection as well as inviting members for expressions of interest for various working/focus group activities.

It is the strength of our membership that allows us to be heard as One Voice for the day hospital sector.

Support when you need it

Our Chief Executive Officer – Jane Griffiths, has an extensive range of knowledge within the industry and is readily available to discuss and advise on any issues of concern with our members as they occur.  Often this may result in an issue being escalated to an external source for resolution and/or an amicable outcome to be achieved.

Our Annual Conference is an opportunity to listen to Speakers on topics reflecting the sector to inform, inspire and motivate.  Our Trade Exhibition Hall offers members with the opportunity to view the largest selection of products, service and technologies available to the day hospital sector, all under one roof.  Day Hospitals Australia members receive a discount upon registration as a benefit of membership.

Current information regarding our National Conference can be viewed here.


NSW, QLD, SA, VIC, WA and ACT have established State or Territory Chapters and meetings are generally held quarterly to bring together members to discuss local activities, challenges and events.  Speakers are often invited to present on topical issues and on general matters of interest.  A significant benefit of attendance is the opportunity to network and connect with other members.
