Due to the current COVID 19 pandemic, there are restrictions in place for visitors to the hospital, which is updated based on the advice of the Department of Health (DoH).

Visiting Maryvale Private Hospital

Visitors are not permitted into any of our hospitals, unless for exceptional circumstances. This is in line with the restrictions and guidelines issued by Victoria’s Chief Health Officer.

We ask that day-case patients arrive alone at front reception for admission. Staff will be in contact with their loved one when the patient is ready to be picked up.

Exceptions apply for:

  • those visiting critical or palliative patients – two visitors are permitted at a time. They do not have to be from the same household and there are no time limits
  • those supporting patients with cognitive impairment
  • providing support necessary for a patient’s emotional or physical wellbeing
  • if they are the parent or carer of a paediatric patient
  • a nominated person under the Mental Health Act, interpreter or carer of a patient with a disability
  • if necessary, visitors are also permitted to accompany a patient attending outpatient clinic
  • those in a group visiting in exceptional circumstances may exceed the ‘two visitors at a time’ rule if they are dependents of a visitor (or hospital patient) who are unable to be cared for elsewhere

Non-essential visits should not take place at this time.

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation and assure you of our continued commitment to the health and safety of patients, staff and the community.
