The Penola War Memorial Hospital is part of the Limestone Coast Local Health Network (LCLHN). Our hospital offers a 24-hour accident and emergency service, six beds for medical, post surgical, convalescent, rehabilitation, palliative care and Transitional Care Packages. The hospital also manages the Penola Medical Clinic, community nursing and in-home support programs. Services for outpatients include medical, nursing and allied health services.
With the increased risk of COVID-19 following the opening of state borders, it is important we safeguard those most vulnerable to the disease. With this in mind and due to the co-location with a Residential Aged Care Facility, the Penola Hospital Emergency Department (ED) has been temporarily closed until further notice.
The community can be reassured this is a temporary closure and will be regularly reviewed. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in the Limestone Coast and ensure appropriate measures are taken to ensure community safety for our vulnerable and elderly population.
Visitors play an important part in any patient’s stay. Visitors are encouraged to visit within the following times.
