Nickol Bay Hospital is a district hospital in Karratha. There were 299 deliveries at Nickol Bay Hospital in the 2016/2017 financial year.
This unit provides for low risk deliveries, with 2 delivery suite rooms and 7 obstetric beds.

Obstetric Care is supported by one community based O&G Consultant and a team of salaried medical officers provide antenatal and inpatient care in collaboration with midwives. Patients may also choose to share care with their local GP for outpatient care. There are no specialist medical staff on site.

A visiting obstetrician attends from Port Hedland once per fortnight. Two of the DMO staff perform emergency caesarean sections. Epidural services are available 24 hours per day, through a DMO-anaesthetic roster.

Emergency transfers are to Port Hedland Regional Hospital or KEMH.
