 When to visit us

Clients and their carers over 65 years living in the Ryde or Hunters Hill local government area.

Clients under the age of 65 whose needs are unable to be met by a specialist provider, may be accepted on an individual basis.

Examples of this include clients who meet Safe and Supported at Home (SASH) eligibility criteria and clients who are under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) but they have health requirements that would lead to a hospital admission.

 How to visit us

Ryde Hospital provides 350 free car parking spaces spread across six car parks. The main car park comprises both covered and open air parking spaces via Denistone Road. The other large car park is a covered car park in the basement of the Graythwaite Rehabilitation Centre via Fourth Avenue. There is a patient drop off zone outside the emergency department and a small car park for patients being tested at the COVID-19 clinic.
