Update from the CEO

On Saturday 19th June, Wollongong Private Hospital have received notification that a doctor has been exposed within the last 24hrs to a confirmed positive case of COVID-19 in their private practice. Subsequently the Public Health Unit has identified them as a close contact.

This doctor has since tested negative and is continuing their period of self-isolation for 14 days.

Unfortunately, this doctor was only made aware of exposure to a COVID positive case after they had visited the birthing suites of the Hospital.

All identified close contacts of the doctor, including staff and patients have also tested negative.

As a precaution, we have undertaken deep cleaning of the identified birth suites.

Oher precautions currently in place include:

  1. All staff and doctors are to wear masks at all times whilst in the Hospital;
  2. All visitors must wear masks at all times whilst in the Hospital;
  3. Patients to wear masks when in public areas of the Hospital (outside patient rooms).


The safety of our staff, patients and visitors remains our priority.
