East Sydney Private Hospital is fully accredited against the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards (NSQHSS), a mandatory set of standards established by the Australian Government for all public and private hospitals.
Accreditation assessment occurs every three years by an independent team of expert health professionals who visit the hospital and review in detail the quality and safety of services provided by the hospital.
East Sydney Private Hospital is next due for accreditation in mid-2023.
At East Sydney Private Hospital, we strive to provide exceptional patient-centred care.
