Visiting Hours

Days: Monday to Sunday

Hours: 4:00pm to 8:00pm

Visiting hours have been arranged for patients’ convenience and that of their guests. To optimise our patients’ well-being and pathway to wellness we recognise the importance of family and friends in a person’s life and the importance of maintaining relationships even whilst participating in a Therapeutic program, and so we encourage our patients to have visitors during their stay. However, as the focus of the inpatient stay is to gain maximal benefit from participation in the Program there are of course some limitations with regard to Visitors:

  • Visiting times are between 4:00pm and 8:00pm
  • No more than 2 adults are permitted to visit a patient at any one time
  • Children must be supervised at all times
  • No Alcohol or other drugs are to be brought into the Clinic
  • Essendon Private Clinic reserves the right to refuse future entry to any visitor who has a negative impact upon the patient they are visiting (or any other patient in the Clinic)
  • Visitors must obey directions from staff with regard to the rules of the Clinic and in the unlikely occurrence of an emergency
  • Smoking is only permitted in the designated area of the Clinic
