Maternity services will be provided at the new $2 billion Fiona Stanley Hospital (FSH) from December 2014.

As part of the transformation of health services in the south metropolitan area, Kaleeya Hospital will close and all obstetrics, gynaecology and neonatal services will be delivered at FSH’s state-of-the-art facilities.

FSH’s maternity facilities will include 36 brand new maternity beds, eight labour rooms and 18 neonatal cots, including those able to support high-risk births.

The change will ensure the delivery of first class health care that meets the needs of the growing population, and a full range of birthing options will be provided at FSH to meet community expectations.

Along with FSH, high quality maternity services will continue to be provided closer to homes at a range of hospitals in the south metropolitan area, including Rockingham General Hospital, Bentley Hospital, Peel Health Campus and Armadale Kelmscott Memorial Hospital, with the most complex cases continuing to be referred to King Edward Memorial Hospital.
