Gatton Health is a public hospital 55km west of Ipswich.
As part of our efforts to manage the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), from 28 March 2020 there will be a limit of 1 visit per patient, per day (maximum 2 visitors) at Ipswich, Boonah, Esk, Gatton and Laidley Hospitals until further notice. This is to comply with a directive issued by the Chief Health Officer.
We understand this is hard, and we know visitors play an important role in a patient’s recovery, but please limit visits as much as possible to keep staff and patients safe.
Technology makes it easy to stay in touch remotely, and we encourage you to stay connected through phone, text, email, social media or video-chat.
In certain situations, 1 person can stay at all times including:
**If you have been asked to self-quarantine in the previous 14 days or are unwell, particularly with a fever, cough, sore throat and shortness of breath, you may not visit the hospital.
