All Townsville HHS facilities are smoke-free zones. The Queensland Government has banned smoking in all Queensland hospitals, healthcare and residential aged care facilities and from five metres beyond their boundaries.
Until further notice, there is a change to visiting hours at all Townsville HHS hospitals to provide more flexibility for those among our community wanting to support a loved one in hospital.
Two people may visit a patient, at the same time, for two-hours, once per day, between 8am and 8pm. All visitors must be over the age of 16.
Visitors can always remain with a patient and are not restricted to the two-hour limit and may stay for longer if they meet the exemptions. For those exemptions, please click here.
