All visitors are asked to observe visiting hours and respect the privacy of our patients.
Visiting hours for all units of the hospital are:
Monday to Friday: 3:00pm - 8:00pm
Saturday and Sunday: Midday - 8:00pm
Public holidays: Midday - 8:00pm
Please report to the Nurses station upon arrival.
If you need to arrange a visit outside of these times, please contact the Area Manager to negotiate alternative visiting hours.
For visitors to our Special Care Unit, we remind you that this is a low stimulus environment. Unit staff may restrict the number of visitors at any time due to clinical requirements.
Visitors must report to the staff station on arrival to our Special Care Unit.
If you are visiting a patient in twin share accommodation, visits are to be conducted in common areas. In consideration of all patients and visitors, please be mindful of noise levels when using our common areas.
In accordance with Queensland legislation, smoking is prohibited on Belmont Private Hospital grounds, and a five metre buffer beyond our boundary. This applies to all patients, visitors and staff at all times and includes all smoking products including regular cigarettes and e-cigarettes. Please observe no smoking signage around our hospital grounds, as Queensland Health can issue on the spot fines to people in breach of this legislation.
All patients admitted to hospital agree to attend our group programs, therefore visits during program times are not allowed. As this is a contractual agreement, non-attendance is permitted only under exceptional circumstances, and with authorisation from the patient's treating Psychiatrist.
Children are welcome at Belmont Private Hospital but must be supervised by an adult at all times.
For patients admitted to our Special Care Unit, please liaise directly with the unit if you plan to visit with children.
