PARENTING SUITE FAQS
How much do the Deluxe Parenting Suites cost?
The Deluxe package is based on an additional nightly rate of $165 inc GST.
Can I claim the cost of the Parenting Suite from my health fund?
Your health fund will generally cover* the costs of accommodation for a mother and newborn in a standard room in the hospital (this does not include the Deluxe Parenting Suites), as well as the provision of standard meals by the hospital for the mother. Some insurance products may include a “family in-hospital benefit” (or similar benefit) which allows amounts to be claimed for partner accommodation and meals. Please speak to your health insurer to clarify any amounts related to the above packages which may be claimed.
* Levels of cover and applicable co-payments vary between insurers and health insurance products. Please discuss your specific insurance cover with your health fund.
Can I Pre-Book a Deluxe Parenting Suite?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to pre-book. Please ask your midwife on admission if you would like to stay in a Deluxe Parenting Suite.
Can a Deluxe Parenting Suite be guaranteed during my stay?
Unfortunately, due to a limited number of Deluxe Parenting Suites, we are unable to guarantee that a suite will be available.
