Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders
Acknowledging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is an important aspect of ending exclusion.
Charlestown Private Hospital, incorporating Hunter Eye Hospital, acknowledges and respects the traditional owners of this land, the Awabakal people. We pay respect to those that have passed before us and acknowledge that today’s Aboriginal Community are the custodians of this land.
