In special cases, arrangements can be made to visit outside the regular hours. Please consult our nursing team for further details.

Visiting areas

Visitors are requested to report to the staff station on arrival.

If you are visiting a patient in twin share accommodation, visits are to be conducted in common areas. In consideration of all patients and visitors, please be mindful of noise levels when using our common areas.

Group programs

All patients admitted to hospital agree to attend our group programs, therefore visits during program times are not allowed. As this is a contractual agreement, non-attendance is permitted only under exceptional circumstances, and with authorisation from the patient's treating Psychiatrist


Children are welcome but must be supervised by an adult at all times.

No Smoking

In accordance with ACT legislation, smoking is prohibited on Deakin Private Hospital grounds, and a five metre buffer beyond our boundary. This applies to all patients, visitors and staff at all times and includes all smoking products including regular cigarettes and e-cigarettes. Please observe no smoking signage around our hospital grounds, as ACT Health can issue on the spot fines to people in breach of this legislation.
