Luxury maternity development opens at Westmead Private Hospital
Mar 15, 2019
New parents will enjoy the modern conveniences and perks of a luxury hotel when they experience Westmead Private Hospital’s new maternity unit expansion.
The highly-anticipated $25 million development has opened and includes 31 extra maternity rooms with opulent and spacious facilities which can also accommodate a support person, as well as 11 new surgical rooms and one extra birth suite.
There are also eight spacious parenting suites – each fitted out with a queen size bed, seating area for guests, wide screen TV and private ensuite. Mothers will also be treated to a gourmet hamper, bathrobe and daily newspaper.
A 14 cot Special Care Nursery is equipped with the latest technology for babies who need extra care, and offers greater privacy and comfort for parents. It provides the highest possible standard of care for a NSW private hospital and is reassuringly co-located next to Westmead Public - one of Australia’s finest tertiary neonatal care facilities - should your baby require additional support.
Patients can access free infant massage workshops and post-natal exercise classes for mothers and babies. There is also an extensive post-natal education program including preparation for home, bathing, settling and feeding.
Westmead Private Hospital CEO Mike Flatley said: “We really want our mothers and their partners to feel like they’re on holidays when they come to stay with us.”
“Our aim is to provide families with a really enjoyable hotel-style experience, while simultaneously ensuring they receive the highest quality care and attention from our medical and clinical teams.”
The new development allows for plenty of natural light, and offers a rooftop garden so families and loved ones have the option to spend time together in the fresh air.
“The completion of this development also signals another exciting achievement: Westmead Private Hospital now offers 100% single rooms throughout our entire facility. This is an important milestone as it affords our patients more comfort and privacy during their hospital stay.”
