Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Information for Residents, Patients and Visitors

Last updated 17 July 2020

CHANGES TO HOSPITAL VISITING

Special rules continue to apply for people visiting Stawell Regional Health during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. The health of our community, patients, visitors and staff is our biggest priority during the outbreak of COVID-19. We have put in place measures to keep our community safe while supporting the provision of the highest level of care.

STAWELL REGIONAL HEALTH HOSPITAL AND MACPHERSON SMITH RESIDENTIAL CARE ARE CLOSED TO VISITATION

As the number of COVID-19 cases rise in Victoria health services across our region are implementing stricter COVID-19 precautionary measures.

At 12 o’clock today, Friday 17 July 2020, SRH closed its hospital and residential care facilities to visitors. This has been an extremely difficult decision but made in the best interest of our community. We urge everyone to work with us to adhere to this request, and to contact the nurse on duty for special consideration in end-of-life/palliative care circumstances.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and regularly review the restrictions implemented.

URGENT CARE CENTRE

The Hospital Urgent Care Center operating hours have not changed. If the condition is serious, please call 000 for an ambulance.

Please Note: Stawell Regional Health along with the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (the department) is closely monitoring developments regarding COVID-19. Advice is continuously updated so any arrangements may change quickly or new rules may apply in the future.
