Peak Body

Day Hospitals Australia is recognised as the peak body for the day hospital sector representing over 71% of all day hospitals (and some small overnight facilities <100 beds) nationally. As such our organisation has become a sought after subject-matter-expert at a State and Federal Government level on key topics impacting our sector.

Day Hospitals Australia is invited to participate on multiple Government Committees and Working Groups across the country providing us with the opportunity to impact and influence the direction of key activities within the industry. Often this requires member involvement which occurs in the form of survey/data collection as well as inviting members for expressions of interest for Committees and Working Groups focusing on critical activities ie AS/NZS 4187, PHI, state-based Regulations along with other activities at either a local or national level.

Chapter Meetings are currently held in ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, VIC and WA. Each state is coordinated independently by a staff member of Day Hospitals Australia and locations, times and the length of meetings vary.  Meetings are held 3-4 times per year (varies from state to state).

Chapter Meetings provide our members with the opportunity to hear from speakers and presenters on topics of interest as well as view products, services and technologies that they may not have considered previously.  Another significant benefit of attendance is the opportunity to network and connect with other members.
