Admission or access to any of the services offered at Geelong Private Hospital is available via referral.
Your local GP, physician, surgeon or allied health professional will be able to assist you with obtaining a referral to a private specialist who is accredited at the hospital and who can organise your admission or enrolment into a program.
During your stay you will be under the direct care of this private specialist who will from time to time be assisted by other accredited private specialists or hospital staff.
Once your admission has been arranged you will be given an admission form to be completed and returned to the hospital at least four days prior to your admission.
The staff of our pre-admission clinic will contact you prior to your day of admission, either by phone or they may request that you make a brief visit to the hospital at a mutually convenient time.
Our staff will let you know what time to arrive, what items to bring with you and will be able to answer any questions or address any concerns that you may have about your stay with us.
