COVID-19 Visitor Update
As always, the protection of our patients and staff is our highest priority.
In response to the current COVID outbreak in Victoria, we have made some temporary changes to our visiting arrangements. Until further notice visits will be restricted to two nominated visitors for up to one hour per day, unless under exceptional circumstances*.
Visiting hours are between the hours of 11.30am to 12.30pm.
We have one main entrance and encourage all visitors to use the screening App where they can to minimize delays through the screening station.
We apologise for the inconvenience and hardship this may cause, but appreciate your understanding of the need to keep patients as safe as possible during these challenging times.
If you have visited Sydney or other COVID exposure locations recently please refer to the Victorian Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) website for advice before arranging any visit.
