Hollywood Private Hospital
Part of Ramsay Health Care


Attending the Hollywood Private Hospital Emergency Department incurs a $200 doctor consultation fee upfront, which is non-refundable and not covered by Medicare or Private Health Insurance.

This fee will be payable upon presentation and payment by EFTPOS or credit card is accepted.

Dependant on clinical need, fees for services such as radiology (e.g. X-rays), pathology (e.g. blood tests) and walking aids (e.g. crutches), may incur additional out-of-pocket costs.

SKG Radiology out of pocket fees will be capped at $275.

If we are not able to admit you into Hollywood, or specialised treatment is needed, you may need to be transferred to another facility by ambulance.

You will be charged by the ambulance service for this transfer. If you have private health insurance, you may be covered for ambulance transfer between hospitals. Ambulance transfer is not covered by Medicare, a Healthcare card, Pharmaceutical or Pensioner Benefit Card.

Please note:

  • Department of Veterans’ Affairs will cover the Emergency Department fees if you are a gold card holder. White card holders are encouraged to make their own enquiries.
  • Overseas visitors, or anyone not covered by Medicare, will be responsible for all charges including a $350 Doctor Consultation Fee.
