Lingard Private offers both shared and private rooms. While we make every endeavour to provide you with your accommodation preference, please understand that in certain circumstances of high activity or emergency admissions, it may be necessary to admit you to a shared room.
All rooms include a TV with Foxtel and local radio stations, complimentary WiFi, a telephone for local calls and ensuite facilities. Patient lounges and seating areas are available in each Ward.
Under an agreement with the Department of Veterans' Affairs, eligible veterans and war widows are admitted to shared room accommodation unless the medical condition requires single room facilities.
If your personal preference is single room accommodation, arrangements should be discussed with hospital staff. Allocation of a single room under these circumstances will require you to meet the extra accommodation cost.
Our Catering department provides a choice of quality meals, prepared on-site. Special dietary needs are catered for, where it is in the interest of your medical care. Learn more about the Meals we offer.
