There are over 600 private hospitals in Australia, including over 300 day hospitals. Private hospital operators include not-for-profit entities, religious organisations, small hospital operators, private health insurance funds and large publicly listed Australian and foreign companies.
Private hospitals are accredited by the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards, BSI Group Australia and New Zealand Pty Ltd or other accreditation body.
The Australian Private Hospitals Association is the peak national body representing private hospitals and day surgeries.
Private hospitals are taking on a growing importance in Australia's complex health care environment. Most Australians opt for taking out private health insurance to be covered for private care either in a private or public hospital.
The Australian private hospital industry is growing, fuelled by increased consumer demand for private health care on the back of historically high private health insurance membership (following the introduction of the 30% rebate in 1999); growth in private investment in healthcare in Australia and the globe; and government support of the industry.
