Due to COVID-19 restrictions visitors to all Swan Hill District Health patients and consumers are currently limited, in line with state-wide directions.

Wherever possible electronic means of staying in touch are preferable at this time.
The Chief Health Officer has restricted access to hospitals where vulnerable Victorians receive care. This is to help protect elderly people, those with chronic medical conditions or those with low immunity from the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Patients receiving treatment and care are especially vulnerable to the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19) and may be critically at-risk if exposed. – DHHS
