East Melbourne Specialist Day Hospital

East Melbourne Specialist Day Hospital is one of the leading private day hospitals in Melbourne. We are highly skilled professionals dedicated to making your day hospital procedure as safe and comfortable as possible.

Once your procedure has been confirmed by your doctor, you’ll need to fill out the admission forms and send them back to us no less than 72 hours before the day of surgery. You can fill these in online, or ask us for a printed form.
It’s critical to heed any fasting requirements given to you by our team. You also need to have a friend or relative to take you home after surgery - if you don’t, this may result in your procedure being cancelled. Read on for more details on what to bring with you, and helpful information on medications.
Most surgeries require us to administer an anaesthetic, which means you can’t drive for at least 24 hours. You should get as much rest as possible in the days following your fertility, gynaecology, IVF or dental surgery, and if there are any issues you should get in touch with your surgeon as soon as possible. If you become unwell during this time, and are unable to contact your surgeon, you should contact your GP, or attend the Emergency department.
In order to admit you as a patient, we need to know someone will be collecting you post-op. Your designated carer should read the following information to help them understand what is required of them.
