It is a tertiary acute care hospital serving the people of the entire province. It receives more than a million patient encounters annually. It is also the primary teaching hospital, and is affiliated with Memorial University's Faculty of Medicine, as well as the Schools of Pharmacy and Nursing. The Women's Health Clinic is also located in the General Hospital.

'''Dr. L.A. Miller Centre'''The Miller Centre was a military hospital built in 1851. In 1978 it was renamed the Dr. Leonard A. Miller Centre to honour Dr. Miller's contributions to Newfoundland's medical history.  The hospital received a complete renovation in 1997 thanks to the generosity of many individual and corporate donors. The Miller Centre provides continuing care and rehabilitation services, palliative and comfort services, and orthotics and prosthetics services.
