Rooms And Support Person Accommodation
St Vincent's Private Hospital offers 22 single maternity rooms as well as six shared rooms.
All rooms are spacious and comfortable and feature private ensuite, wi-fi and direct dial telephone, flat screen televisions and a wardrobe and bedside locker. Meals and snacks are ordered through room service and partner meals are also available through room service at a small additional cost.
Partners are welcome to stay overnight, if you are in a private room. Reclining chairs (subject to availability) are provided. A small fee applies.
Partners or support people are not able to stay overnight if you are in a shared room.
Please advise your midwife or nurse as soon as possible, if you would like your partner or support person to board with you. One adult support person is able to board per room.
Registering support people
Our aim is to ensure your experience with us in truly memorable and enjoyable; however, there will be routines that should not be interrupted. Patients and babies wake, require care and feed often during the night and during these times staff may need to turn on lights to provide care. If your partner/support person needs to work the following day, you should take this into consideration when deciding whether they stay with you.
Partners or support people will be required to complete a registration form, so that they understand the conditions under which they are staying overnight and to help us account for them in an emergency.
The cost of your support person staying in your room
A small fee is charged to cover the cost of overnight accommodation for a partner or support person. Room service is also available and the additional cost will be added to your hospital account to be paid on discharge. Please note that these fees are not refundable from your health insurer.
