In 2009-10: almost 6 million emergency department presentations were provided by major public hospitals, with 70% of patients receiving treatment within an appropriate time for their urgency (triage category); about 610,000 patients were admitted to Australian public hospitals from waiting lists for elective surgery, with 50% of patients admitted within 36 days. *Please note: from 2009-10, the data for the Albury Base Hospital was reported by the Victorian Department of Health as part of the Albury Wodonga Health Service.
