Geelong Maternity Service Launches in April

March 15, 2017| Epworth News /

The maternity service at Epworth Geelong will soon commence, as we welcome four obstetricians to the hospital.

Geelong Maternity Group, comprising Dr James Swan, Dr Michael Shembrey, Dr Jodie Benson and Dr Emily Huning, will move into Suite 3.3 over the coming weeks. From late April, Geelong Maternity Group will see their first patients who are at approximately ten weeks gestation. We expect our first full-term baby to be born in November 2017, with the first booking already confirmed.

Last month we welcomed Camille Gordon and Gabby Ryan to the pre-natal and post-natal nurse unit manager positions. Together with Lisa Garner, they will lead the recruitment phase and final set up of maternity services.

Throughout Epworth Geelong and the wider community, the launch of this service has been greatly anticipated and I look forward to welcoming our first mums and babies to the hospital.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the team involved in the planning phase and to welcome our first obstetricians to Epworth Geelong
— Damian Armour, Epworth Geelong CEO, Epworth HealthCare

The first maternity tours commenced today, with tours held every Wednesday at 6pm and Sunday at 4pm.
