Jessie McPherson Private Hospital Continues to be a Centre of Excellence for Obstetric Patient Care

We would like to reassure the families in our care that we remain one of the safest places in Victoria to have your baby during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

At Jessie McPherson Private Hospital we have very stringent precautions in place across the entire hospital to protect all of our patients and staff. All hospitals across Victoria will be preparing to deal with COVID positive patients. Jessie McPherson Private Hospital has been preparing for 18 months and our processes are well embedded.

We understand there may be heightened concern amongst our families due to the news that Monash Health is caring for COVID positive pregnant women. The Jessie McPherson Maternity Unit is in a secluded part of the hospital separate from the COVID maternity ward, you will be very safe and extremely well looked after by our highly trained staff.
