Northern Beaches Hospital is at: 105 Frenchs Forest Road (West) Frenchs Forest NSW 2086.
In addition to traditional signage within the hospital, we also have wayfinding machines on the ground floor to assist with navigation around the hospital.
Visiting hours are in place to ensure that patients have a balanced amount of time with family and friends, as well as time to rest and recuperate. For special circumstances, including maternity and Intensive Care, please speak to the ward staff.
For the majority of other areas, visiting hours are 10.00am to 1.00pm, then again from 3.00pm till 8.00pm. Any visits outside of these hours must have approval from the relevant ward staff.
Children must be supervised at all times whilst visiting in the hospital and noise levels should be kept to a minimum. Visitors’ lounges are available in each ward.
We have a large retail area on the ground floor with excellent food and drink options and areas inside and outside the hospital to sit in comfort. We also have a café on level 7 located with the specialist consulting suites that anyone can access.
On the ground floor, for patient and visitor convenience, is a convenience store, florist and retail pharmacy.
An ATM is situated on the ground floor.
Wi-Fi is available throughout the hospital, including patient rooms and public areas. Ensure Wi-Fi is enabled on your device and select the Healthscope network.
Small electrical appliances such as shavers and hairdryers may be used in the hospital. However, it is necessary to have these items checked and tagged as electrically safe by a qualified electrician prior to your admission, so please advise nursing staff if you wish to use appliances that have not been checked. Faulty equipment may interfere with the use of vital medical equipment. We do not accept responsibility for damage to, or personal injury from, electrical items bought into the hospital.
Flowers and balloons delivered for patients will be sent to the patient’s room when permitted. Due to infection control precautions, live flowers are not permitted in Intensive Care.
As a healthcare facility we endorse a smoke free environment for all staff, visitors and patients, and therefore smoking is prohibited in the hospital and on the hospital grounds. For patients who find this difficult, please discuss alternative therapies with your doctor or nurse, as we are equipped to provide appropriate support. Patients who wish to smoke must leave the hospital grounds at their own risk, unaccompanied by staff. Please inform the ward staff of your intention to do so.
