Westmead Private Hospital opens luxury maternity unit


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 new private maternity rooms with opulent 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. 

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.

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 is a valued partner in the Westmead Precinct. Its next project underway is the transformation of its two-bed patient rooms into single rooms.
