Community Open Day

You are invited to come along to the Rockingham General Hospital’s Community Open Day on Saturday 17 November.

Go behind the scenes of the hospital and talk to the staff who deliver health care to you, your family and your friends.

There will be a health expo, including information on nutrition, mental health, aged care, Aboriginal health, maternity, as well as visits from St John Ambulance and My Health Record.

The afternoon kicks off with the official opening of a new playground area in the Paediatric Unit, complete with face painting for the kids.
