    do public hospitals have private rooms?

    Hello Ladies,
    Do public hospitals have private rooms or do they have only public wards? I am researching Tuen Mun Hospital, Princess Margaret or Prince of Wales but cannot seem to find much information on their websites.

    Thank you!

    some do... i know that QMH and PYNH have them. i'm not sure about PWH or the others, sorry. best thing to do is to call the hospital authority or the hospitals directly.

    you will pay private prices, though...

    Are you looking for a private room for labor? I don't think Pamela Youde actually has private labor rooms. They do have private and semi-private recovery rooms, though.
    “Many women have described their experiences of childbirth as being associated with a
    spiritual uplifting, the power of which they have never previously been aware …
    To such a woman childbirth is a monument of joy within her memory.
    She turns to it in thought to seek again an ecstasy which passed too soon.”

    I called Prince of wales and the guy said that there are no private rooms only public wards. How strange.

    Hi bagel,

    I must admit POW wasn't very forthcoming when I asked them about private rooms. I was told that they do offer it but they would backdate all the services I had with them and the cost would be equivalent to a

    (sorry iPhone glitch)
    full private hospital service. I asked the nurse there personally and she gave me the name of another nurse or registrar to call re: private rooms.

    In the end, I chose public.

    Sorry I couldn't be of any more help to your query.

    Same experience for me as for Newbie_HK at the Prince of Wales. Also, they wouldn't allow me to book in advance, I could only see if there was availability on the day (and I had a caesarian so the day was known). I was fully planning to get a private room, but when they told me the costs, it wasn't worth it.
