Waitaki District Health Services


Oamaru Hospital is now operating at a higher level of alertness internally, to better keep our community and staff safe. This means:
• Everyone entering the hospital is screened on arrival
• Those entering the Hospital will be required to wear surgical masks
• Those with mask exemptions (excluding patients) are not permitted to enter the Hospital
• All inpatients are restricted to two nominated visitors for the duration of their stay however only one visitor per day (exemptions on compassionate grounds will be considered)
• Meals on Wheels will move to contactless deliveries
This is a precautionary measure to keep our vulnerable patients and staff safe on recommendation from the Southern DHB.

Note – due to the evolving Covid-19 status in our community, it may be that we need to change these restrictions at short notice.

Visiting hours are currently 2.00 - 7.00pm daily.

These arrangements will be in place until further notice.
