The Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital (RBWH) is Queensland's largest hospital and provides a wide range of clinical services in the heart of Brisbane.

RBWH employs more than 6,000 multidisciplinary staff that together provides life-saving treatment to over half a million people each year.

As the largest provider of telehealth services in Queensland, thousands of patients can connect with the hospital’s specialists via state-of-the-art instant video connection, bringing expert care to rural and regional patients and reducing the need for them to travel large distances away from home.

Firmly established as a world-leading healthcare, research and innovation hub, RBWH has proud partnerships with more than 14 Queensland and national universities, 3 TAFE providers and boasts strong ties to the Australian Defence Force.
