Accident and emergency

With the increased risk of COVID-19 following the opening of state borders, it is important we safeguard those most vulnerable to the disease. With this in mind and due to the co-location with a Residential Aged Care Facility, the Penola Hospital Emergency Department (ED) has been temporarily closed until further notice.

The community can be reassured this is a temporary closure and will be regularly reviewed. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in the Limestone Coast and ensure appropriate measures are taken to ensure community safety for our vulnerable and elderly population.
