Your first step towards recovery.

The most important step in your recovery is making the decision to seek help.

Our caring staff are on hand to guide you through the admissions process. Please review the five steps to successful admission, then complete the admissions enquiry form. Alternatively, you can contact us on (02) 8197 5800 or email

Step 1

Make a pre-admission call

Please call us on (02) 8197 5800 to arrange a pre-admission phone assessment.

Step 2

Consider your options to pay for treatment

Admission to Wesley Hospitals Kogarah is available to clients with private health insurance. As a private hospital, we’ll arrange payment for your treatment through your private health insurance.

Step 3

Obtain a referral

To receive treatment and care at Wesley Hospitals, we must receive a completed patient referral form. If you’re a client, please download and print the form and ask your GP or psychiatrist to complete it for you. If you don’t have a GP or psychiatrist, please call (02) 8197 5800 to organise a phone assessment.

Step 4

Pre-admission assessment

Your pre-admission assessment is a judgement-free, confidential chat with an experienced health professional to identify your needs, prepare your treatment plan and determine your start date. During this call, we might ask you about your current mental state, risk of harm to yourself or others, alcohol or drug use and your history of mental and physical health.

Step 5

Day of admission

On the day of your admission as an inpatient, you’ll be welcomed at reception by our admissions nurse who’ll take you through any additional paperwork. You’ll then be settled into your room and given time to unpack before meeting your treatment team.
