Tennant Creek Hospital

Making an appointment at Tennant Creek Hospital

Except in an emergency, admission to hospital is through referral from your GP, health clinic or agency.

Obstetric patients are advised to attend the pre-admission clinic about four weeks before you are admitted.

Surgical patients should contact the hospital on (08) 8962 4399 a week before and the day before your scheduled surgery to check if there are any cancellations due to bed shortages.


While every effort is made to ensure your surgery happens on the date given, your appointment may be postponed because of other emergency admissions.

If you need to cancel your admission, call (08) 8962 4399.
