Refurbished Maternity Hub now open

Tuesday, 27 February 2018

Barwon Health's refurbished Maternity Hub at University Hospital Geelong officially opened on 28 February 2018.

Director of Women's and Children's Directorate Claire Geldard said the refurbishment has created a modern, spacious environment for patients and families.

"In addition to the improved look and feel of the Maternity Hub, comfort for expecting mothers and families has been a big focus. We have two new recliner chairs for women presenting who do not require assessment in a hospital bed, a larger ultrasound room in the Maternity Assessment Unit, and more privacy in the waiting area.

"With completion of the project the Maternity Hub Reception, Maternity Assessment Unit and Midwives Clinic rooms has relocated back to Bellerine Centre, Level 4 and can be accessed via our Myers Street hospital entrance, alongside Birth Suite.

"We look forward to welcoming families and staff into this new and improved environment, and we thank them for their patience and understanding during the construction period."

The project was generously funded by proceeds from Cotton On's Run Geelong event, the Bibury Trust, Kiwanis Club and the South Barwon Auxiliary.
