    Being in a Private Hospital at the time I needed my hysterectomy was the best thing as not only did I get the best Doctor I received excellent care from the nursing staff. In a public hospital I would be nothing less than a number.

    I was 10 years old I ran into the dining table and split the top of my eye open and went to a public hospital and they made us wait in the queue for an hour so my dad took me to a private hospital and they helped me.

    I have had 4 operations in the last few years at Shellharbour Private Hospital and on each occasion was treated with care and kindness by all the staff. I highly recommend them they are very professional and caring.

    Our grandson, Zavier, was born on the 11th Oct 2010. It was fantastic that his parents were able to stay together for the 5 days in hospital. This enabled his dad to feel special and Zavier's mum adjusted faster to being a new mum. Thanks Mercy Hospital!

    Dad needed a Lumbar Laminectomy. He was worried. He didn't know how much longer he could cope with such immense pain. Luckily, St Vincents hospital admitted him within a fortnight!! The awesome staff looked after him so well, he was able to get out of bed the very next day!

    I was at Baulkham Hills Private Hospital to have my tonsils taken out. An overnight procedure. This is the first time I have ever slept the night through at a hospital!! I was so relaxed going in and felt rested leaving the next morning.

    I had my baby boy Christopher at Glengarry Private Hospital in WA this April. I went private for my second child. What a difference I had superb service. I stayed an extra night in comparison to begging to be let out early. It was fantastic.

    I was only 11 at the time but at President Private in Gymea I was made to feel comfortable by the nurses (they let me stay longer as I had trouble waking up from the anaesthetic).

    Due to a nervous breakdown I was admitted to SJOG. The nursing staff went way beyond their job description to make patients feel understood, & appreciated for who they were. Public Psych hospital admissions are more likely to push a person over the edge as they treat people like a number.

    I am currently an inpatient at Delmont Private in Victoria. They have quite literally saved my life. I was in a downward spiral and had gotten to the point where I felt suicide the only option. The wonderful staff here have never given up on me.
