Mental health expertise
Mackay Private Hospital opened its dedicated 8 bed mental health unit in July 2020.
The unit provides treatment for mood disorders, anxiety, depression and older adult conditions and operates on a consultant team basis with highly qualified mental health nursing and therapy staff.

A referral is required from your GP or treating doctor, to a psychiatrist with admitting rights to our hospital. A member of our admissions and assessment team will conduct an over-the-phone assessment and require your health fund details.
Following assessment and health fund check, we will discuss your case with a psychiatrist with admitting rights, who consult to our hospital under their own independent business. On acceptance of the referral, we will contact you to arrange admission and transfer of your care and management to a psychiatrist with admitting rights.
