Admission to hospital

For a day procedure

When you arrive at the hospital, visit the Patient Admissions Desk on the Ground floor directly inside the main entrance. Our admission team will help you to complete your paperwork and check that your details are correct.

You will then be escorted by a volunteer to the Day Procedure Unit on level 2 of the main hospital.Please ensure that you organise a support person to stay with you while you are admitted to hospital and to pick you up after your procedure.

To avoid your procedure being cancelled, make sure you have followed the preparation instructions given to you during your pre-admission appointment.

For maternity services

Prior to coming to hospital call our Birthing Suite on (07) 3883 7714. On your arrival, go to the Birth Suite reception, located on Level 3.  View more information about your labour and birth at Redcliffe Hospital.
