Obstetrics

We have taken extensive measures to protect our patients and staff.

No visiting is permitted at present.

Fathers may be present for childbirth. Afterwards the father can stay in one of our Superior rooms together as a family, either for the first few days, or for the full time until the mother and baby are discharged. If the father leaves the hospital, he is then classified as a visitor and will not be permitted to re-enter. Visiting is not permitted by fathers who do not attend the birth; sibling children are not allowed to visit. We are taking this measure to protect mothers and newborn babies.

Thank you for your understanding!

If you are pregnant and you need to come into the hospital but you have symptoms such as a cough, a sore throat, shortness of breath, or fever, please contact us by telephone before coming to the hospital.

Information evenings and presentations on childbirth (in German) will be given as webinars.
Courses and other services are suspended until further notice.

Further details on the measures against the coronavirus

With Austria’s largest private maternity department, Goldenes Kreuz Private Hospital is the perfect setting for mother and baby – before, during and after the birth, offering skilled support and nurturing care, state-of-the-art equipment, and above all, an outstanding level of medical safety.

Our experienced specialists in gynecology and obstetrics are available 24 hours a day, together with anesthetists and intensive care specialists: this is an unparalleled quality standard for a private maternity unit. Additional advantages are the close proximity and established collaboration with the university departments of obstetrics and gynecology, and pediatrics, at Vienna General Hospital.

TIP: For a complete description of our maternity services, in a readily accessible form, take a look at our folder (PDF).

The number of babies delivered here has been growing continuously for many years now, and confirms the trust our attending doctors and parents-to-be have in our determination to consistently maintain the highest possible standards of medical and care quality. The best evidence of this is the 1,500 babies who come into the world in our hospital every year!
