With the commissioning of our new ED in April 2024, our ED care points will uplift to 42 treatment areas and a further 16 bed Short Stay Unit later in 2024. Albury ED is the regional Trauma Centre for the North-East and Southern NSW regions.

Wodonga ED provides emergency care to approximately 32,000 patients annually. The ED has 15 treatment areas and receives all obstetric emergencies. There is a six bed Close Observation Unit (COU) that has a mixed model of care for high acuity and SSU patient providing care to approximately 500 patients annually.
