Western Private Hospital will provide an estimate of your stay based on the information supplied by your doctor. Your estimated gap must be settled on admission. Payment options include Credit Card (Diners and American Express not accepted), Money Order or Bank Cheque, EFTPOS and cash. We do not accept personal or business cheques.

Non hospital fees such as; Doctor, Pharmacy, Radiology and Pathology will be billed separately to your hospital account, for an estimate of these costs you will need to contact the provider directly.

Self-funded hospital stays need to be paid in advance or on the day of surgery. Fees are an estimate only and any balances are required to be settled on discharge.
