The joy of private care


St John of God Berwick Hospital is proud to introduce their new bundle of Joy – a new lower cost private maternity model. Joy offers privately insured patients a more affordable way to use their cover and access a high end private hospital experience by reducing out of pocket costs. In fact, patients will only be $990 out of pocket*! Joy, oh, joy!

Joy is an alternative option for maternity care at St John of God Berwick Hospital, a hospital which now has two maternity models for patients to choose from. In addition to Joy, patients can still choose their own obstetrician with the traditional maternity care package.

No matter which package patients choose, they will receive the same exceptional care once they are admitted to hospital, including a single room with bedding for their partner.

Joy enables patients to save money by providing a collaborative model of care, where patients will be seen by a whole team of specialist obstetricians and midwives, rather than just one doctor. Joy patients will be cared for and monitored by the rostered obstetrician at each of their appointments and at the birth of their baby. Each of these obstetricians is a joy – compassionate, highly trained and experienced.

Delivering a baby at St John of God Berwick Hospital comes with all the education new parents need as they embark on their new family life. Paediatric first aid, sleep and settling workshops and one on one lactation advice are just some of the ways we help prepare new families.
