With the year coming to a close, the health district celebrated its achievements for the past year.
On an average day in Murrumbidgee Local Health District in 2018/19, there would have been 971 patients in hospital and another 142 receiving outpatient service or care in the community.
The emergency department would see 435 people with six people admitted for a mental health condition.
The Annual Public Meeting was held on Tuesday at the Wagga RSL Club to celebrate the achievements of the past 12 months, and discuss the goals for next year.
Gayle Murphy, the chairperson of the MLHD board, said she was proud of what the staff and leader had accomplished, but there was still more work to be done.
"We will never stop improving in all areas," she said.
"One of our guest speakers was talking about patient expectations, and that is one are we need to do more work in."
Chief executive Jill Ludford said this year she was particularly proud of the achievements of MLHD staff and services recognised on the statewide stage, with three awards won.
"For the second year in a row, a MLHD staff member has taken home the NSW Staff Member of the Year Award," she said.
"Jenny McKenzie, a nurse practitioner, has been the clinical lead for a palliative care service providing quality care to patients living in rural and remote NSW."
Ms Ludford thanked all health staff who have worked extremely hard over the year providing high-quality services to patients and clients.
