Welcome to Canberra Private Hospital
Information on the precautions we are taking regarding the COVID-19 outbreak can be found here.
In addition to this, and in the interests of the safety of our patients and staff, we have also amended our protocols for all patients and visitors attending Canberra Private Hospital.
- In line with ACT Health Clinical Health Emergency Coordination Centre (CHECC) advice all patients, staff, contractors and all visitors entering Canberra Private Hospital are requested to complete the online Health screening questionnaire prior to admission and attendance at the hospital. This can be completed in one of the following ways:
a. Online at screening.covid19.act.gov.au;
b. Scanning the QR code, which can be found on signage displayed at hospital entrances, or downloaded here; or
c. Hard copy forms which are available at reception and screening stations at the hospital.
2. All patients will undergo temperature screening on arrival at level 3, or at level 2 if visiting overnight patients.
3. For patients staying in our overnight ward:
- While COVID-19 guidelines are in place visitors are restricted to a maximum of one (1) visitor per day.
- For admitted children one (1) parent / carer may be present at all times, and an additional one (1) visitor may attend for up to one (1) hour per day.
- Visitors must not be unwell, or have been in contact with a known case of COVID-19 infection
- Visiting hours are from 10am to 8pm. All visitors should present to the nurses station on level 2 for screening prior to visiting patients
- For all others wishing to visit or those unable to visit due to illness, we encourage you to make contact with patients either by telephone via the hospital switchboard on 02 6173 3733, or via the direct telephone number in patients rooms.
We thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.

Patients regularly comment that Canberra Private Hospital doesn’t feel like a hospital; their care is personalised and they feel included in decision-making. Unlike many other hospitals, we’re also known for our food! In partnership with the catering services team, our internationally trained chef creates a range of appetising meals for all dietary requirements.

A comfortable, worry-free hospital visit begins before the day of your procedure. We’ll make sure you feel ready for your operation, and have everything you need for your stay with us.
When we’ve received your admissions forms, we’ll review your medical history, and get in touch if we require any additional information.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders
Acknowledging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is an important aspect of ending exclusion. Awareness of the importance of different cultures and acceptance of this diversity as a part of modern Australia is central to the Canberra Private Hospital culture. This increased acceptance across all aspects of our society is a critical aspect in helping to create a more united Australia.
