There are no fixed visiting hours at our hospital. However, because you need your sleep, we recommend you receive your visitors between 8:00 am and 10:00 pm. We also ask you to please be considerate of the other patients in your room. From time to time we have to ask visitors to leave the room for a short time due to certain nursing and medical activities. Otherwise visitors are always welcome, as they are proven to be beneficial to the recovery.

Safe deposit

Upon admission you will be asked to sign a statement acknowledging that Döbling Private Hospital is not liable for any lost or stolen monies and / or valuables. However, your room is equipped with a lockable closet to which only you will have the key. We ask that you keep your purse and other valuables there. During surgery, you may ask a nurse to hold on to the key for you. In addition, you may take advantage of the safe deposit box which can be found in each room to securely store your valuables. A user's manual for the safe can be found in each room.
Large amounts of money can also be deposited with the Admission Office. Please note that this service is only available during office hours, i.e. Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm and Fridays from 8.00 am to 3:00 pm.


Discharge from our hospital is not bound by office hours. You can check out every day around the clock, even on weekends.

Please settle your telephone bill, if applicable, at the reception – otherwise we will send your telephone bill to you by mail. You can pay in cash, by Austrian debit or any major credit card.

If you are a self-paying patient, we ask you to pay your bill at the Admission Office.
