As a maternity patient of Dr Guy Skinner’s you have a choice of two private hospitals for your birth. St Vincent’s Private Hospital in Fitzroy. And Epworth Freemason’s Hospital in East Melbourne. Each hospital offers world-class medical and obstetrics technologies and exceptional birth facilities.
Guy is a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist to both institutions, and has taught and mentored many of the permanent staff at both hospitals. We can confidently say you’ll be very well looked after whichever hospital you choose. We recommend you have a look at both St Vincent’s and Freemason’s to see which hospital suits your needs or your location best.
Once you have decided which hospital you prefer, please advise our staff so they can make your hospital booking. We do recommend doing this as early as possible, as availability may sometimes be limited.We are happy to assist you with any questions you may have about booking a room or birthing suite at either hospital.
For all hospital contact details please speak to one of our friendly staff. Both hospitals sit at the most respected end of care, and are known for their excellent medical outcomes.
