Visiting Times

UPDATE, July 9: Any visitors from the metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell shire will be refused entry into the hospital and residential care facilities unless there are special circumstances as per DHHS guidelines and arranged by the relevant Manager. If a visit does occur appropriate PPE will be required for these visitors.


Visitors are allowed to spend an hour with patients on our general wards.

Visiting hours have been changed to 2-4pm to give each ward a dedicated hour of visiting and to ensure we stagger the movement of people in and out of the hospital.

Two visitors are allowed per patient on our general wards within the visiting hour, which can be arranged with the relevant nurse unit manager.

All visits will need to be arranged in advance with the ward and visitors will be temperature checked on arrival.

Our intensive care unit will be opened up to visitors from 2-3pm, with one visitor allowed per patient for 15 minutes.

We ask that people do not bring in flowers because we want to keep the environment clean. Sealed food packages and drinks can be delivered to the atrium by family members only. Atrium staff will wipe down all packages.

Specialist wards such as our Women’s and Children’s and the Respiratory units will have visiting only at the discretion of the nurse unit manager.

Children under the age of 16 are not permitted to visit. In exceptional circumstances visiting arrangements must be made with the relevant ward.

Visiting hours for specific wards are as follows:

  • 2pm to 3pm for Medical and Rehab units, & Mental Health.
  • 3pm to 4pm for Surgical, EDSU (ward 6B) and Orthopaedic ward.
