John Hunter Hospital operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Normal business hours are 8:30am – 5pm weekdays.
Visiting hours are between 8am – 8pm, with a rest period between 1pm – 3pm. During the rest period, staff will return patients to their beds, close blinds and quieten the ward. We ask that relatives and visitors respect this period by vacating the ward or remaining quiet so that patients can sleep or rest if needed.
