Greenslopes Private Hospital celebrates 10 years of maternity services
Feb 24, 2023
Greenslopes Private Hospital is celebrating ten years of helping Queensland families grow, delivering more than 10,000 babies since the maternity service opened in February 2013.
Dr Brad Armstrong from Greenslopes Obstetrics and Gynaecology delivered the very first ‘Greenslopes baby’ – Mia, born on 26 February 2013, and has since delivered almost 2,000 more.
“I love helping families grow, and I particularly love when families return to have more babies at Greenslopes. It’s awesome to think there are children as old as 10 now running around who were delivered at Greenslopes and families with up to four kids who have all been delivered at Greenslopes,” Dr Armstrong said.
“The most rewarding part of the job is helping families navigate what can be a stressful process and also delivering new life into the world, ensuring the mother and baby are safe.”
Dr Armstrong credits the facilities and the people as a likely reason why so many families choose Greenslopes Private Hospital maternity services.
“The facilities are second to none. I haven’t worked anywhere else that comes close to the facilities, the wonderful team and working atmosphere that we have at Greenslopes. Our team of midwives, support staff, paediatricians, anaesthetists and obstetricians are hands down the best maternity team in the country. I would challenge any other public or private maternity service to come even close to what we offer.”
Greenslopes Private Hospital CEO, Chris Went, said the maternity service was a wonderful addition to the hospital.
“Our vision is to combine quality clinical care with first class luxury and service, and I think we’ve achieved that with our maternity suites and leading team here at Greenslopes,” Ms Went said.
The more than 10,000 babies born at Greenslopes maternity in the past 10 years are an almost an even split of boys and girls and include 136 sets of twins.
