Mum’s the word: dedicated theatre opens to maternity patients
Aug 30, 2019
Women who give birth via caesarean section at Greenslopes Private Hospital will now be able to use a purpose-built obstetrics operating theatre.
The new family-friendly space has been designed specifically for expectant mothers, to create a more seamless transition when relocating from the maternity ward to the operating room.
Greenslopes Private Hospital CEO Chris Went said: “We are really pleased to be providing our maternity patients with their own dedicated theatre. Historically, caesarean deliveries have occurred in a different operating room located in the middle of our large theatre complex.”
“The opening of this facility will also streamline scheduling processes when it comes to c-section deliveries, which is especially important during emergency situations.”
The new maternity theatre is conveniently located adjacent to the birthing suites and all of the associated amenities on offer to the entire family.
A Greenslopes Private Hospital cardiologist with a keen eye for photography has helped to beautify the operating room. A seascape photo, taken by Dr Anders Taylor, will be printed on a wall to ensure a more relaxed, calming environment for expectant mothers.
