Amenities and facilities

We offer a number of amenities and facilities for our patients and visitors to help make your stay or visit more pleasurable.

Entertainment

In most wards there are digital television screens above each bed. Access to the televisions is available on a daily or weekly rental basis for standard free-to-air digital channels and movie channels.

The rental costs depend on the number of days required and channel types selected. The television service is provided by an external company and is not managed by us. For payment information, see Purchasing Credits below.

For safety reasons, the use of private TV sets is not permitted.

Telephones

Bedside telephones are available so patients can receive incoming telephone calls at no cost. The telephone service is provided by an external company and is not managed by us.

Local calls (un-timed) are $0.45 per call, while calls to mobiles (timed) are charged out at $0.80 per minute. Long distance calls (timed) within Australia are charged out at between $0.24 and $0.80 per minute.

You will need to purchase credits before you are able to use the bedside phone for outgoing calls.

Public telephones are located near the hospital main reception.

Mobile phones

Patients and visitors may use mobile phones, however we request that you refrain from doing so during clinical assessments or when signs indicate that mobile phones are not to be used.

Purchasing credits

Credit for TV hire or to make outgoing telephone calls can be purchased via credit card through the bedside phones (dial 67 and follow the prompts) or with cash through dedicated vending machines located on the wards.

If you have chosen to use your private health insurance during your stay at our hospital, you will receive complimentary TV rental and capped credits for phone calls. For more information, contact our Private Patient Liaison Officer on 9391 2087.
