Our story is your story
Your family’s name could be featured on the new tower at St Vincent’s Private, prominently positioned on Victoria and Brunswick streets in Fitzroy.
St Vincent’s Private Hospital opened in Fitzroy in 1972. It was ahead of its time. After 50 years of alterations and adaptations, the hospital needs an expansion and redevelopment, requiring additional operating theatres, upgraded oncology and day surgery facilities, and a new intensive care unit (ICU). Today, St Vincent’s Private is renowned for delivering exceptional healthcare, supporting more than 27,000 patients and their families each year.
In the future, the new hospital tower will allow the provision of exceptional care to you and your loved ones in state-of-the-art facilities with contemporary technology utilising medical innovations through research.
Our future is here
The tower will allow St Vincent’s Private to care for an additional 20,000 patients a year.
It will enable the upgrade of facilities for specialities including cardiology, neurology, orthopaedics, ICU, operating theatres and maternity.
St Vincent’s Private Hospital has long been one of the pre-eminent Melbourne hospitals for mothers and babies. On levels three and four, luxurious and spacious new birthing suites will provide the perfect environment for parents to welcome their new baby while maintaining a specific focus on complex care of mother and baby.
The new special care nursery will better equip the team of midwives, neonatal nurses, obstetricians and paediatricians to care for premature or unwell babies from 32 weeks gestation. This, coupled with an adult intensive care unit, means that on the rare occasions where both mother and baby need immediate specialist care, they will remain in the same location.
The special care nursery may often be a baby’s first bedroom, and the idea is to create a womb-like feeling of comfort, safety and quiet. The interior design considers the sensitivity of premature babies and their parents through softly curved edges, warm pink and minty green tones, giving a safe and friendly feel.
“Health is moving at a rapid pace. As specialists, we remain focused on developing new facilities for our patients. The new 12-level building at St Vincent’s Private Fitzroy will provide state-of-the-art facilities to support our work to provide the best patient care. It will also include an expanded maternity hub for our young families,” says St Vincent’s Private Hospital obstetrician and gynaecologist, Dr Lionel Steinberg.
