When You Arrive
If you are being admitted to hospital on the day of your procedure, you will be admitted via the Day of Surgery Admission Centre (DOSAC), which is located on Level 4 of the Hospital, close to the car park. If you have parked in the main car park, you will find lifts adjacent to the bottom of the stairs (Level 2). Take the lift to Level 4, and DOSAC is directly opposite the lifts.
If you enter through the main hospital entrance, ask at Reception for directions.
If you are being admitted for any of the following treatments or reasons, please attend the Reception on Level 4, in the main hospital foyer, for admission:
the day before your surgery
for non-surgical care
for maternity care
for paediatric care
for sleep studies
for procedures performed in the Cardiac Catheterisation Laboratory
for procedures performed in the Radiology Department
If you are attending either the Day Infusion Centre (for infusion, transfusion, chemotherapy) or the Renal Dialysis Unit, please attend the main reception area (foyer) only on your first admission in a course of treatment or if you need to make a payment. For additional visits, please proceed directly to the Day Infusion Centre or Renal Dialysis Unit for admission.
If you are attending the Radiology Department, please present to the main reception area (foyer) on Level 4 for admission approximately one hour before your procedure time.
If you are unable to keep your appointment for admission or if you have any questions about your admission process, please contact us as soon as possible on (02) 9487 9903.
General ward visiting hours are 10.30am to 12.30pm and 3.00pm to 8.00pm.

All wards have recommended rest periods. Ward staff will notify you as to what these are. We ask that you advise your friends and relatives not to visit or call during these times.
