Visiting Hours

Essendon Private Clinic welcomes visitors. We recognise the importance of maintaining relationships with family and friends while admitted to hospital, and so we encourage our patients to have visitors during their stay.

However in order to gain the maximum benefit from participation in the Wellness Program, we ask that visitors only come during the following hours:

Weekdays: 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Weekends: 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm

All visitors must report to reception on arrival. Children must be supervised at all times. Discharged patients and those attending Day Programs are not permitted to visit current hospital patients.

Visitors are welcome to join patients for dinner, however the order must be placed by 9:00 am. Please phone reception for meal prices and to purchase a meal ticket.

Please note: Alcohol and illicit drugs are forbidden at all times and are not to be brought into the clinic under any circumstances. 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.


Parking on the hospital grounds is provided free of charge for visitors only. The main entrance to the car park is located on Rosehill Road.

We ask that those staying with us as an inpatient do not bring their car to the hospital as we are unable to offer parking for patients. If a patient parks their car on the premises, they will be charged $50 per week.
