Harvey District Hospital 1933

Harvey is home to the Harvey District Hospital, which provides an emergency department plus excellent general health care.

The hospital is also home to aged care, physio, OT, mental health, x-rays, and much more. For further information on the services the hospital offers, please see WA Health Services.

For more critical conditions, Harvey’s emergency helipad can airlift patients to Bunbury or Perth.

Please note: the Emergency entrance is located on Wright Street, not Hayward Street, as Google Maps indicates.



With the growth of agriculture and Harvey River Diversion Drain works, the Minister for Health W.H. Kitson opened a much-needed Harvey District Hospital in 1933.

Erected by public subscription, subsidised on a £1 for £1 basis by the Government, it consisted of wards for men and women and a maternity ward. The total cost of the building was £2400 and the equipment £400.

By 1936, it had an excellent reputation and catered for 14 patients, outpatients and housed an x-ray plant.

Further additions were undertaken in 1946, consisting of a small flat for the matron and accommodation for five nurses, four probationers and domestic staff. A small two-roomed building was erected for the night staff.
