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.

From 13 July until further notice every person entering any public health facility in the ACT will be required to register their attendance and complete a Symptoms Check and Travel Check.

You can do this by:

  • Scanning the QR code on the health screening posters as you enter the health facility
    OR
  • Filling in your details online by either scanning the below QR code with your mobile phone camera or visiting the link below:

    OR

  • Fill in a form at the screening desk.
    This can be completed on arrival at Calvary, or be completed in advance and retained for you to show the staff at our Entry Registration Desks.

The pandemic has prompted us to ask you to do a few things differently to help us care for you better.

  • visitors must practice hand hygiene and social distancing
  • visitors will be required to register their name and contact details
  • visitors must leave Calvary if asked to do so
  • children and young people (up to 17 years of age) should avoid visiting Calvary
