I am sure the surgeons are great and the theatres are state of the art but the small shared rooms are ridiculous for those of us who pay top insurance. I also agree with comments re nursing staff. Seems there may be a lot of agency staff. Have had superior accommodation and care in other hospitals.
My mum undergone surgery last week here the surgeon was attentive. thorough. overall did a excellent job however i cant rave about the nursing staff unattentive below average for a private hospital wouldnt recommend in my opinion
I had surgery at Epworth hospital twice this year and both times the staff and facilities were excellent. Epworth is pioneering minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery and has some of the best surgeons and specialists all round.
Think twice - 3 hour wait and didn't see a Doctor
Left Emergency Department after waiting more than 3 hours on a Monday evening to see a Doctor - my daughter has either appendicitis or gastro. She had been sick for 3 days and unable to get appointment with local GP. Admission desk clerk said we would need to speak with triage nurse regarding likely wait time (this was after 2 hours of waiting). Triage nurse did not reappear. If this was a public hospital I would expect a wait time like this. However this is a private fee charging facility which is supposed to see patients relatively quickly. Not impressed.
My kindest thoughts and gratitude to the staff and Specialists at Epworth Hospital and Epworth Centre for their professional, friendly, and compassionate service. You made a big difference, when seeing through an unpleasant process.
