Admission to Mount Gambier Private Hospital is arranged through your private specialist, local GP or via the Emergency Department according to availability and your doctor’s private admitting rights.
To be admitted as a Private Patient and to be cared for by the doctor of your choice, three conditions must exist:
- Your doctor must agree to accept you as a private patient; and
- The doctor that you choose must have admitting rights to the hospital for the type of medical problem or procedure for which you need emergency or non-urgent care; and
- An inpatient bed must be available in the private hospital.
