Lithgow Hospital Visitor Information

Smoke Free Policy

All our hospitals and health campuses are smoke free. Smoking anywhere on the grounds may result in a $300 fine.

New visiting hours & arrangements

We are taking additional precautions to help protect our patients and visitors by changing the arrangements for visiting patients.

  • 10am to 1pm and 4pm to 8pm
  • Maximum of 2 visitors
  • No children under the age of 12
  • Visit for up to 1 hour only
  • All visitors to check in at Nurses Station

Please remember, at all times, visitors who are unwell or who have recently returned from overseas travel will not be allowed to visit patients or accompany them to outpatient appointments.

We also remind our visitors to:

  • wash their hands with soap and water often, or use hand sanitiser
  • cough/sneeze into their elbow or a disposable tissue
  • whenever possible maintain a distance of 1.5 metres from others

We thank our visitors and patients for understanding the importance of following these new measures.

Patient Election and Private Patient Information

If you or a family member are admitted to any public hospital you can generally choose to be treated as a public or a private patient. This is called an inpatient election.
