Canterbury Hospital is a metropolitan acute general hospital which has provided care for our community since 1929.

We offer emergency medicine, general surgery and medicine, obstetrics and gynaecology, paediatrics, aged care, rehabilitation, palliative care and outpatient services. 

Canterbury Hospital was redeveloped in 1998 to expand the range of services offered to include a community health centre, Tresillian Family Care Centre, a specialised after hours General Practice service and drug health clinic.

In December 2020, works were completed on a $6.5 million upgrade to the Emergency Department.

Canterbury Hospital is right in the heart of the network of hospitals and services which make up Sydney Local Health District.

Our skilled staff are approachable and committed to providing high quality care to our patients and their families. We have a diverse workforce that reflects the population we serve.

Aboriginal Cultural Garden

Canterbury Hospital's Aboriginal Cultural Garden, celebrates the rich indigenous history of the local area and is a space for staff, patients and their families to share.

It depicts the local Aboriginal history of the Bediagal people who lived along the banks of the Cooks River and surrounding areas.

The ochre and blue designs on the floor of the garden represent the river and land, with native plants to be dotted throughout the space.
