Women's @ Sandy turns one


It has been one year since the Women's commenced its maternity and gynaecology services at Sandringham Hospital.

In that time 2000 patients have accessed the services and 1247 babies have been born.

Sandringham Hospital's director of nursing Judy Reeves says that success is about sustainability and one year down the track this innovative model of care is thriving.

"Looking back, it was a really smooth transition to the Women's, and I want to congratulate both the Women's staff and Alfred Health staff for that success.  

"We are looking forward to an ongoing partnership to provide quality maternity services to our community."
