The Birthing Suite
The Birthing Suite comprises large modern birthing rooms that ensure a personal and safe environment for your birthing experience. There are a total of seven birthing suites featuring large ensuites and shower facilities. Labouring women and their partners are offered many flexible choices to ensure a positive and safe birthing experience. We encourage your partner and/or support person to be involved in your care during labour. Overnight facilities are provided in each Birthing Suite for your partner.
Special Care Nursery
The Special Care Nursery is a Level 2 nursery providing any extra care and support that may be required. In the event of a baby being born prematurely or unwell, transfer to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit can be organised without delay.
We have the unique advantage of being co-located with both Westmead Hospital and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. This allows us to provide our patients with the highest standard of private hospital care whilst having access to tertiary level care facilities if required.
