PRIVATE HOSPITALS

INTRODUCTION

This publication presents data for the private hospital sector in 2013-14. It contains three main chapters and is supported by two data cubes. The first chapter covers summary information about private hospitals. The second and third chapters cover more detailed information for acute and psychiatric hospitals, and for free standing same day facilities respectively.

There are relatively few psychiatric hospitals and some of these are owned by the same parent company. To maintain the confidentiality of data, psychiatric hospitals are combined with acute hospitals in most tables in this publication. Any differences between the data presented in this publication and the data shown in other reports on private hospital activity are due to differences in scope and coverage, relative completeness of the data sources and differing error resolution procedures.

The success of the 2013-14 PHEC was dependent on the very high level of cooperation received from private hospitals operating in Australia. Their continued cooperation is very much appreciated; without it, the range of statistics published by the ABS would not be possible. Information received by the ABS is treated in strict confidence as required by the Census and Statistics Act 1905.

The Private Health Establishments Collection was not conducted for the 2007-08 reference period due to ABS budgetary constraints. This represented a break in the time series for the collection.
