Emergency Department

The Emergency Department is open 24 hours seven days a week. The department is located on Gray Street with car drop off facilities located at the Gray Street main entry point.

St George Hospital has one of the busiest Emergency Departments in New South Wales and is the major trauma centre for the South Eastern Sydney Local Health District. At St George Hospital, we take pride in providing quality emergency care to people from the local community and from all over New South Wales. Each year thousands of patients seek treatment from St George Hospital’s Emergency Department. 

Every person seeking emergency care is first assessed by a specialist triage nurse, whose job is to make sure the sickest patients get treated first. If you are feeling more unwell while you are waiting to be seen, please tell the triage nurse.
