On 24 July 1884, a hospital at Muttaburra was established to provide medical and hospital services including maternity care.

Under Rules and Regulations published in the Queensland Government Gazette 1923, Vol. CXXI, No. 241, p.2364, the hospital at Muttaburra was to be called the Muttaburra District Hospital. It appears that the word "District" was no longer used after the "Hospitals Act of 1944". From 1944 - 1991 the hospital was administerd by the Longreach Hospitals Board. In 1991 boards were abolished and replaced by Regional Health Authorities but from 1996 these were also replaced by district managers and Councils to monitor services.

Fom 2007 within the Central West Health Service District, the Muttaburra Primary Health Care Centre provides hospital and community health services.
