Toowong Private Hospital recognises the significant distress the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and its associated impacts is having on society in general and the increase mental ill health this is causing, for not just existing mental health patients, but many people within the Australian community.
Toowong Private Hospital is committed to continuing to provide high quality psychiatric care and services to patients across all settings of care including inpatient, day patient and community. All of our services have been modified to accommodate social distancing requirements and other safety measures introduced to contain the spread of COVID-19. This means that some of our services and treatments have been modified. It has also resulted in some of our services and treatments being available remotely via telehealth means (including video and telephone contacts).
