"Exceptional care given at Maroondah ED"

About: Maroondah Hospital

(as a parent/guardian),

Recently, after having to give my 10 month old baby an epipen for anaphylaxis, the ambulance took us to Maroondah. I was terrified, but I was quickly reassured by a beautiful calm, caring and very competent Dr David. He and his team provided prompt and vigilant care to my baby and I am so grateful. It was thankfully a very good outcome and our baby is their happy beautiful self. I was nervous going to Maroondah (not being a specialised paediatric hospital), but my expectations were far exceeded. A massive thank you to the nurse Erin whose care was also exceptional and she took the time to visit us in short stay before she went home. Can’t thank you enough. 😊😇
