Patient and visitor information

At Calvary Public Hospital Bruce we aim to give the best possible care and support to ensure your wellbeing and comfort.

We are located at Mary Potter Circuit, Bruce ACT 2617.

A Public Health Emergency has been declared in the ACT. For the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, read more via this link.

Each patient in Calvary Public Hospital may have two visitors per day (preferably not at the same time), and visits are limited to 11.00am to 1.00pm and 3.00pm to 8.00pm.

For admitted babies, children and young people (0-17 years), both parents (or carers) can attend interchangeably, for the duration of the patient’s admission. This should be discussed with the relevant clinical team.

Women admitted for care related to birthing may have two support people present (only one in theatre for caesarian section). This should be pre-planned with the relevant midwifery and obstetric treating team during antenatal care.

Anyone not fully COVID vaccinated should avoid visiting any health facility.

Public entry to Calvary Public Hospital must be via the main entry (6am to 8pm daily) or the Emergency Department (always open).

    Every person entering any public health facility in the ACT will be required to wear a mask at all times in side Calvary Hospital, and register their attendance by completing the ACT Health Screening Tool.

    You can do this by:

    • Scanning the QR code on the health screening posters as you enter the health facility
