Visit Lyell McEwin Hospital

The safety and wellbeing of people in our hospital during COVID-19 is of paramount importance. To help protect our patients, visitors, staff, volunteers, and community from COVID-19 we are continually monitoring the situation.

For more information, please visit our current visitor guidelines page for all sites within the Northern Adelaide Local Health Network.

Visitors play an important part in any patient’s hospital stay and are welcome. Visitors are encouraged to visit within the following times:

General wards: 10.00 am to 12:00 pm and 3.00 pm to 8.00 pm daily.

Women’s Health Unit: 8.00 am to 8.00 pm with one support person daily.

Paediatric ward: 10.00 am to 1.00 pm and 3.00 pm to 8.00 pm daily.

Please note:

  • Visiting is at the discretion of nursing and midwifery staff, from whom permission should first be obtained.
  • Please check food, sweets and drinks for patients with the nursing and midwifery staff, as many patients are on special diets.
  • Please consider patients in the hospital, by behaving quietly and observing any restrictions on visitation made for the benefit of the patient.
  • Visiting children are the responsibility of their parent or adult carer and must be supervised at all times while in the hospital, and noise kept to a minimum.
  • Furniture is placed to ensure rapid access to rooms in emergencies. For this reason, seating for visitors is limited.
