Visitors please consider the need to visit. As an alternative we encourage you to call loved ones directly via the hospital’s switchboard number or direct room number instead.

Please select a hospital in the Patient Status search panel to obtain visitor information.

Flying Kites

This is a quick and easy app for family and friends to track the progress of a patient during their stay in an ACHA Hospital. The app provides updates on location through theatre, recovery and the patient's return to the ward. The ward name, room number and in some cases the phone extension number are included in the information displayed. If there is a change of wards and/or rooms during the hospital stay, Patient Finder will display the updated location.

Visitor & Phone Status

ACHA take no responsibility for the distribution of the Patient Finder link or patient admission number to anyone that is not the admitted patient. Every effort is made to keep a patients status up to date, however at times there may be delays to accommodate for a patients movement throughout the hospital.
