The Royal Hobart Hospital (RHH or 'The Royal' as its often known) is the largest hospital in Tasmania, Australia. It is a public hospital managed by the Tasmanian Government. 'The Royal' is located in central Hobart. It services all of Southern Tasmania and has the capacity to facilitate 400 patients. The main entrance is currently under construction with a new emergency unit. This began operation in early 2007 with surrounding construction ongoing.

It is a teaching hospital in co-operation with University of Tasmania, has its own research facilities known as the "RHH Research Foundation" and is the largest employer in the State of Tasmania.

History

The RHH first began in 1804 but didn't move to its current site until 1820. In November, 1999 the Queen Alexandria wing was leased to become the Hobart Private Hospital.
