ST JOHN of God Hospital in Subiaco was voted the second best in WA in a national Medibank Private survey of top hospitals for maternity care.
The survey evaluated the experiences of more than 2000 patients that recently gave birth in private hospitals across key areas of care, including staff, support throughout pregnancy, birth and early parenthood, and hospital environment.
Last financial year, St John of God Hospital Subiaco welcomed 3686 babies into the world.
Chief executive Shane Kelly said in addition to Subiaco’s excellent maternity services, it met a critical community need by supporting women and their families affected by antenatal and postnatal anxiety and depression.
“The St John of God Raphael Centre is part of our commitment, through our Social Outreach and Advocacy services, to providing free or minimal cost services to people in the community who are experiencing disadvantage,” Dr Kelly said.
“Our desire to provide services in the community, well beyond the walls of our hospitals, is an important part of who we are.”
St John of God Hospital in Murdoch was ranked the top private hospital for maternity care in WA in the survey.
