Temporary closure

From Thursday 26 March, we will temporarily close our Hopetoun Street, Elsternwick, campus. This is part of our coronavirus containment strategy, to minimise the risk of infection and provide the safest possible environment for our patients, families and staff.

From Thursday 26 March, all inpatients at Hopetoun will be transferred to Cabrini Brighton for their ongoing treatment and care. Our expert rehabilitation team will also be located at Cabrini Brighton during this time and will continue to coordinate patient’s therapy program and provide rehabilitation care.

Please speak to your treating team if you have any questions about this change of location.

Cabrini will continue reviewing changes to our services, in line with Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) advice, and will keep our community informed as this changes. For more information about the evolving coronavirus situation, please refer to Cabrini’s dedicated webpage or the DHHS website.

To minimise the risk of infection transmission for our patients, staff, residents and community, visitation is now restricted to the following:

- Only immediate family or carers
- Children under 15 are requested NOT to attend
- Only 1 visitor at a time
- All visitors MUST FIRST report to the ward desk before entering a patient’s room
- Social distancing of 4 square metres must be adhered to
- We recommend you contact the person in hospital by their mobile phone or iPad / Tablet (eg. FaceTime) rather than visit them, if possible.

These decisions have been made in line with advice from the Department of Health and Human Services. We will continue to review information as it becomes available and keep our community updated as the situation evolves.
