Visitors

Healthscope’s visitor guidelines have been issued with a guiding principle that visitors must be fully vaccinated, which is necessary to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission and to keep our people and patients safe.

All visitors must be fully vaccinated and show evidence.

There are two forms of evidence for vaccination status. The first is an online immunisation

history statement and the other is a COVID-19 digital certificate from the Australian Immunisation

Register. These can both be accessed through:

·        Your Medicare online account

·        The Express Plus Medicare app

·        The Australian Immunisation Register

·        My Health Record.

More information can be found on the Australian Government website: www.serviceaustralia.gov.au

Visitor restrictions and the range of safety controls are likely to change as conditions change in the local and state environment.

Thank you for your help in keeping us all as safe as possible. Please continue to promote vigilance with mask wearing, regular hand sanitizing and social distancing where possible.  If you do have any queries please contact us directly.

Getting vaccinated is not only something we do for ourselves. We do it for the people we love and care for. We do it for our patients, our workmates and for everybody’s safety.
 

Visiting hours

Restrictions are as noted above. 

Please note that visiting hours are currently 2.30-4.30 pm daily, restricted to two nominated persons for Mother Baby Unit visitors and one nominated person for Hampden Unit. 

Children are not permitted to visit in either department at any time.

Partners (co-parents) on Mother Baby Unit have no time restrictions. 

 

Car parking and transport

St Helen’s Private Hospital can be reached via the Metro Tasmania Bus (stop number five).

Our hospital is only one kilometre from the city centre. Visitor parking is available on site (two hours maximum) and the car park can be entered via Davey Street.

Patients are requested not to drive to the hospital.

Please have a friend or relative drop you off.
