Special Care Nursery

Our Special Care Nursery is specially designed and equipped to care for babies who require special care, observation and treatment. A team of expert specialists, nurses, midwives, paediatricians and allied health professionals are on hand to care for these little patients.
We offer individual, family-centred care for each baby and care is tailored to the individual needs of each baby to ensure the best possible outcomes. We seek to provide an environment that supports the infant’s continued growth and development.
While your baby may be classified as a nursery baby, wherever possible, and depending on your baby’s condition, your baby may remain in your room, returning to the nursery for treatment. This will increase your confidence in caring for your baby. 

Costs for special care 

Please note that if your baby is admitted to the nursery, your child will be considered a hospital inpatient and further costs will be incurred. 
We advise that you check with your health fund to clarify your level of cover. Depending on your insurer and your level of health insurance, an excess for your baby may apply, in addition to your own insurer excess. 
Fees from the attending paediatrician may also be charged if your baby or babies are admitted to the nursery. Please check with your health insurer about these costs.
