However, Sole’ vita breaks the mould on conventional hospitals.  Accredited under NSQHS, the design of patient areas ensures maximum comfort and support for both patients and their families.  Our recovery areas and overnight rooms feature flexible privacy glass-paneling and personal ensuite.  With no more than 5 patients staying at once, our patient-to-nursing-care ratio is the best in the Australia.

Coupled with state-of-the-art surgical theatres, sterilisation services, patient safety and various clinical aspects of any surgery, Sole’ vita presents a new standard in medical facilities and long-stay private hospitals.

All this means you can relax knowing your surgery will be performed in a professional and very caring environment.  The unique and innovative design of our facility allows us to monitor your recovery whilst ensuring your privacy.  In addition, the Sole’ vita team is committed to the highest possible standard of patient care and service.
