    I chose to have treatment in a Private Hospital because of the excellent care and service that I received. The 'can do' attitude of all staff was very evident at all stages of my care. When you are sick or in need of treatment you need it now, unfortunatly the over stretched public health system cannot always respond to your need for care in a timely manner.

    I had day surgery yesterday at Caboolture Private Hospital. I was very impressed by the level of care I received in all aspects of my procedure. Everyone was very competent, friendly and caring and the whole process was very well organised. Thanks to all the staff there

    Knowing I can choose my doctor, have my own room and most importantly choose my hospital. Private hospitals are a necessity to make you feel special when it is most needed.

    I value Berkley Vale Private Hospital because they are taking wonderful care of my husband who looks healthier than he has for a long time because of the care and attention given.

    Because I have always received the most professional, competent and friendly care when needing treatment from a colonoscopy, angiogram through to spinal surgery. I am grateful to be able to access private hospital care.

    I've had three surgeries and a day surgery. Two of the surgeries were in two different private hospitals. The quality of care in both private hospitals was higher and more satisfying to me as a patient than the public hospital surgeries. I ask why members of parliament and public servants consider themselves as qualified as private hospitals to own and operate hospitals; I urge parliaments to commission independent regular reviews to highlight this question

    Private hospitals are one of the most valuable enitities that a country can have. It's not a choice it's a must!!! Any modern and first world country like Australia should have as many Private Hospitals as possible. In my opinion Australia doesn't have enough still. It's legging behind in that matter. Thanks to Greenslopes Private, I was operated in no time on an advanced ovarian cancer which saved my life.

    The Sydney Adventist Hospital in Wahroonga NSW saved my father's life. After being rushed to Mona Vale Hospital by ambulance on a Saturday night with suspected meningitis they couldn't do anything for him until Monday. We took matter's into our own hands and drove him to the emergency room at SAH, they worked on him immediately, diagnosed within three hours and started treatment. As it turns out they estimate he only had about 5-6 days left to live, if it wasn't for private hospitals I'd be burying him this week.

    I recently underwent surgery at Hollwood Private Hospital in Nedlands and was most impressed by the staff. Prior to this I was of the opinion that hospitals were similar to western airlines where the service was subject to the attitude of the staff at that time Unlike many Asian airlines where the service is always very good. The staff at Hollwood won my respect with the consistant happy attentative care, thank you. You won a heart.
