While you are here

Accessing the wards

Access to the wards is controlled via an intercom service to ward reception. Some wards (such as Paediatric Critical Care and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) have additional criteria and nursing staff within these areas will advise you on what these are. 

After hours access

Main entrance

Weekdays: 6.30am to 9pm
Weekends: 6.30am to 8.45pm

Northern entrance

Accessible by staff only.

After these hours, parents and carers will need to use the Emergency Department entrance and can only access ED and the Green lifts (a shutter restricts access in the concourse between ED and the PCH main entrance and atrium).

Please note: If your child is booked for an operation, both Surgical admissions on Level 3 and the Pink lifts are not accessible until 6.30am.

PCH Security

Your safety and security is of great importance to us. If you see any behaviour you're concerned about, or you feel may impact on you or your child's safety, please speak to a staff member immediately or call PCH Security on 6457 1399.

Bringing gifts

Visitors are welcome to bring or send gifts to inpatients, however balloons must be latex-free and some wards will not allow flowers due to hygiene, infection control and allergy reasons.
