Aged Care services provide inpatient assessment and treatment of complex medical conditions in older people.

It has four Aged Care wards, with one specialising in the management of dementia.

Older patients often enter the acute setting of the RMH City campus after an episode of ill-health or for surgery. For those older people that need further time to recover or for the older person that is not coping at home in their current situation, they are transferred to the Royal Park campus.
