RPA is a premier tertiary and quaternary referral hospital, recognised as a leader in healthcare excellence and innovation. A key hospital of Sydney Local Health District, RPA serves its local community and patients from across NSW, Australia and internationally.  

RPA celebrated 140 years in September 2022.  

Since its foundation, the staff at RPA have pioneered innovative techniques, treatments and complex interventions, including Australia’s first aortic valve replacement, first liver transplant and first nuclear medicine department. RPA has a national and international reputation for excellence, established through the efforts of staff in patient care, teaching, research and support services.

 A $750 million redevelopment of RPA is underway, the most significant transformation in the history of the hospital. 

Each year staff at RPA care for around 80,000 people who present to the Emergency Department and an additional 20,000 people who arrive via ambulance, deliver over 4200 babies, perform almost 20,000 operations, and provides outpatient services to more than 560,000 people per year.
