The Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) is Queensland’s largest hospital and provides a wide range of clinical services in the heart of Brisbane. RBWH employs more than 6,000 multidisciplinary staff that together provides life-saving treatment to over half a million people each year.

RBWH provides outstanding care across an extensive range of clinical areas and is known for its preeminent cancer care, maternity, trauma and burns care.

RBWH’s service to the community is immense. It has close to 1,000 beds, provides more than one tenth of all patient services in Queensland as well as services to patients in Northern New South Wales and the Northern Territory.

As the largest provider of telehealth services in Queensland, thousands of patients can connect with the hospital’s specialists via state-of-the-art instant video connection, bringing expert care to rural and regional patients and reducing the need for them to travel large distances away from home.

Firmly established as a world-leading healthcare, research and innovation hub, RBWH has proud partnerships with more than 14 Queensland and national universities, 3 TAFE providers and boasts strong ties to the Australian Defence Force.

RBWH is a Choosing Wisely partner and is leading the way nationally to promote better conversations about the appropriate use of medical tests, treatments and procedures, which is ultimately strengthening and integrating patient care.

With more than 150 years of caring for Queensland, the modern-day RBWH supports and produces world-leading research and education, and is a prominent innovator in the pursuit of ever-improving patient outcomes.
