Comment
A hospital thus defined may be located at one physical site or may be a multicampus hospital. A multicampus hospital treats movements of patients between sites as ward transfers. For the purposes of these definitions, the term hospital includes satellite units managed and staffed by the hospital. This definition includes entities with multipurpose facilities (e.g those which contain both recognised and non-recognised components).

This definition includes, but is not limited to, hospitals as recognised under the 1993-1998 Medicare Agreements.

Nursing homes as approved under the National Health Act 1953 (Cwlth) or equivalent State legislation and hostels approved under the Aged or Disabled Persons Care Act 1954 (Cwlth) are excluded from this definition.
