Visiting KEMH - Information Guide

Being a patient, or the parent/carer of a patient, in a large hospital can be an unfamiliar and intimidating experience. We hope the information produced by the hospital can help make your visit or stay as easy as possible.

Visiting Hours

Visiting hours on wards 3, 4 and 5 are between 3pm and 8pm. Patients may receive visits from one nominated support person (i.e. partner) outside these hours. Visiting hours on Ward 6 are between 8am to 1pm and 3pm to 8pm. Visiting hours have been amended to ensure women are provided with adequate time to rest during the day. Prior arrangements must be made for visits outside of normal visiting hours.

Visitors to the Special Care Nurseries, Labour and Birth Suite and Adult Special Care Unit are subject to special requirements. All visitors to these areas must check first at the area reception desk.
