Epworth endorses the Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights. The Charter describes what you, or someone you care for, can expect when receiving health care.
These rights apply to all people in all places where health care is provided in Australia. This includes public and private hospitals, day procedure services, general practice and other community health services.
Healthy meal options
Epworth has teams of highly experienced chefs across all sites, working to prepare a wide range of meals from seasonal produce. At some of our sites, the bedside Point of Care terminal can be used for ordering meals.
If you have any dietary requirements, these can be accommodated by advising your doctor and our staff of any requirements prior to admission.
More than half of all medical equipment at Epworth HealthCare is funded by EMF, and 80 percent of Epworth’s medical research.
Our visiting hours provide Epworth patients the necessary rest time they need for their recovery.
