Our Services

Amenities & Services

Retail Outlets at the San

There are several outlets at the hospital providing a wide range of services, including cafe's, a pharmacy, a bookshop, a florist and a hairdresser.

Mobile & Public Telephones

There is a public telephone located on Level 4 of the Clifford Tower, to the rear of the lifts.

Due to the possible interference with medical equipment, the use of mobile telephones and all wireless communication devices is not permitted in critical areas, such as Intensive Care Units, Operating Theatres, and Special Care Nurseries. In general ward areas, mobile phones should not be used within one metre of any medical equipment. There are lounge areas on all wards where mobile phones can be safely used without causing any interference with equipment.


Mail (including emails through the Email a Patient service and eCards through the Send a Patient eCard feature) is delivered to patients’ rooms daily by one of our Help Team Volunteers. Any mail received following discharge will be forwarded to the patient's home address.

A letterbox is located in the Level 4 foyer of the Clifford Tower, opposite the lifts. For regular mail, stamps may be purchased between 9.00am and 4.00pm, Monday – Friday from the Patient Services Cashier, situated in the foyer of the Clifford Tower.

Newspapers & Magazines

Newspapers are available for purchase at the San Snax on Level 4 of the Clifford Tower from Sunday to Friday. A variety of magazines are available from the San Café on Level 4 of the Clifford Tower.

Changes to volunteer services throughout the Hospital

Unfortunately the San volunteer department has been temporarily suspended until further notice.

Sydney Adventist Hospital has made this decision as part of our response to the evolving situation caused by coronavirus COVID-19. We believe that these measures will reduce the risk of spreading the virus to patients and family members, staff and doctors, and especially our dedicated volunteer workforce who run San Snax.


An ATM is located on Level 4 of the Clifford Tower, behind the lifts. While most businesses and food outlets within the Hospital are able to take credit cards and EFTPOS payments, some are cash only.

Bus Services

Two bus services operate on a regular basis to and from Sydney Adventist Hospital. Both services are operated by Shorelink Bus Services with one travelling from Turramurra Station on the North Shore Line, and the other from Hornsby and Thornleigh Stations on the Northern Line.
