From 28/09/20 until further notice: Under Covid Level 1 hospital visiting is as follows:
• Visiting hours: 2.00pm – 4.00pm and 6.00pm – 7.00pm
• Two visitors per patient. This also ensures our vulnerable patients are getting the appropriate amount of rest. If you feel unwell, please avoid the main reception area and go directly to the Emergency Department entrance beside our Ambulance Bay (24/7) – please wear a mask, and apply hand sanitiser.


Waitaki District Health Services Limited is not allowing visitors to Oamaru Hospital except on compassionate grounds. Visitors allowed on compassionate grounds are limited to those residing in the patient’s household. We are making exceptions to the household rule for those patients who live alone and have limited access to alternative support networks.

All visitors are being assessed through a series of questions for COVID -19 and their details are recorded. If they are unwell, they are not able to visit.  We ask people need to phone 433-0290 if they fit the above criteria and wish to visit.
