We are pleased to announce that our new South Wing expansion provides pleasant, relaxing places for our surgical and orthopaedic patients to recuperate in. North Shore Private also prides itself on excellent clinical patient outcomes. Our hospital outcomes for infection rates, falls and hand hygiene compared to the national hospital benchmark, can be viewed here.

On the orthopaedic ward our highly trained orthopaedic physios also provide an early involvement to assist patients to regain movement, strength and independence following injury or surgery.

The physios work in partnership with the doctors and nurses to provide personal care to facilitate optimal recovery. This may include exercises, prescription of walking aids, gait re-education, education on slings and braces and advice on do’s and don’ts.

Our team’s priority is your recovery and safe discharge to home or a rehabilitation centre.

You may need ongoing physiotherapy and support prior to returning home and this is available at a number of rehabilitation centres. This will be discussed with you during your hospital stay and should this be required you will be visited by the Discharge Planner who will be able to give you all the relevant information. Contact: 02 8425 3450.

Facilities available include Hunters Hill Private Hospital and Mount Wilga Private Hospital.
