Acknowledgement of the Traditional Custodians

Waratah Private Hospital acknowledges the traditional custodians of country throughout Australia, and their continuing connection to land, sea, culture and community. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past and present, their people, their beliefs and their cultures, on whose land we provide a health service. We are committed to delivering quality health services, cultural support and advice for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients.

Are you Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander?

Please let our staff know on admission if you identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. We will work with you to ensure you receive the care and services that are culturally appropriate for you to contribute to your comfort as a patient at Waratah Private Hospital.
