Welcome to Peninsula Private Hospital
Located right on the Redcliffe Peninsula in the heart of the Kippa Ring is Peninsula Private Hospital.
As a dedicated medical, surgical and rehabilitation hospital, we have been providing quality healthcare services to the greater Kippa Ring area for over 30 years.
Our highly trained clinical team provide a full range of healthcare services and believe in working with our patients to provide a holistic approach to clinical care.
Coronavirus Management Implementations
In the interest of caring for our patients, visitors, staff and doctors we have implemented some new processes at Peninsula Private.
We appreciate this is a difficult time and thank everyone for their understanding.
Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In response to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we have had to change our hospital visiting protocols. To ensure the safety of our patients, staff and visitors, the following guidelines are now in place:
- VISITORS – Two adult visitors are permitted per patient visiting once per day.
Patients can only have one visitor at a time with visits limited a maximum of one hour.
Additional restrictions may apply in some areas to ensure patient safety.
Visitors must not be unwell or have returned from overseas or an identified hotspot in the last 14 days.
We encourage family and friends to telephone patients instead of coming into the hospital. You can either ring switchboard or the direct room number.
- VISITING HOURS – Monday – Sunday, 1pm – 6pm
- CONTRACTORS - Please do not visit unless you are providing an essential service.
Peninsula Private is pleased to advise that the Queensland Government has now lifted restrictions on elective surgery. Under Government guidelines, the resumption of surgery is contingent on our hospital's ability to maintain social distancing practices.
What elective surgery can now be performed?
All elective surgery (Category One, Two and Three) can be performed, however we need continue to work within our existing guidelines, ensuring we maintain safe social distancing and a sustained supply of PPE.
Within these guidelines, your treating doctor will assess the appropriateness of their patient for surgery and we look forward to working with our surgeons and patients to make the process of reinstating approved surgery as straight-forward and seamless as possible.
What does this mean for you?
We are working with surgeons to reschedule an accumulated demand of elective surgeries. Your patience during this time is greatly appreciated. Please continue to follow all previous instructions ahead of your admission date.
Your care and safety is our top priority. To protect our patients, staff and doctors, we are conducting pre-admission screening checks for patients, as well as precautionary temperature checks for anyone entering the hospital. We will be in touch with you before your surgery to confirm these details.
In the meantime, it is still really important that you continue to follow Government recommendations such as practicing good hygiene, keeping a physical distance, and other advice.
Our visiting restrictions remain in place. Please see above information for current visiting times.
If you have an upcoming admission, you will be contacted by SMS and phone call the day prior to your admission where we will ask various questions to ensure your safety and others already in the hospital.
In addition, on the day of admission we have a further screening tool for patients as they enter the hospital along with temperature testing before they are admitted.
We would like to thank everyone in advance for accommodating our new measures.
We are pleased to announce our Day Rehab Programs have recommenced as of 3rd June – for more information on our groups or how to join click here.
Achieve Health Physiotherapy is now open for bookings. Please contact our Achieve Health team on 1300 335 115 to book an appointment.
Bulk billing appointments are available for patients with an appropriate GP Care Plan.
Social Distancing and Hygiene
We would like to remind everyone that social distancing is a very important control that applies in hospitals as well as outside. The distance of 1.5 metres should be observed as much as possible in all areas of the hospital including waiting areas and dining rooms- with the exception of where we are providing direct patient care.
This will ensure we are minimising the risk to both ourselves and to others.
In addition, it is vital we all practice good hand hygiene we have hand sanitiser available in all areas of the hospital and encourage people to use this during their time on site.
Don’t know how to hand hygiene properly? Please ask one of our staff to give you a quick demo or check out hand hygiene Australia website.
Once again we appreciate everyone’s understand and help in these difficult and challenging times.
