Acknowledgement of Country

Deakin Private Hospital acknowledges the traditional custodians of country throughout Australia, and their continuing connection to land, sea, culture and community.

At Deakin Private Hospital we invite you to join in our Acknowledgement of Country and pay respect to the traditional custodians of this land, waterways, and sky, the traditional people and their Elders, past, present and emerging. We also acknowledge the broader Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and extend our gratitude for their contributions to health and healing.

Are you Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander?

Please let our staff know on admission if you identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. We will work with you to ensure you receive the care and services that are culturally appropriate for you to contribute to your comfort as a patient at Deakin Private Hospital.

Please note that all information collected by our health service is subject to privacy laws to guarantee your information is protected and used appropriately.

We encourage you to also connect with our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health and Support services.
