COVID-19 UPDATE ON SERVICES
From Monday, July 27, we will reinstate our hotel post-natal service for members in Northern Tasmania.
St.LukesHealth temporarily suspended its hotel post-natal service in April due to COVID-19, instead offering a home-based service for members with telehealth services.
We are unable to access the Mantra Charles Hotel for the post-natal service until September, however we are pleased to partner with Peppers Silo Hotel in the interim period where our members will enjoy a special stay and meals from the Grain of the Silos restaurant.
One change to this service during this period is that we are unable to transfer members to the Silo Hotel once they are discharged from the Launceston General Hospital. Instead, we ask members to make their own way to the hotel.
To be eligible for this service, you need a be a member of St.LukesHealth, to have delivered your baby at the Launceston General Hospital and be covered by a hospital product that includes pregnancy and related services. A 12-month waiting period applies to new members and members transferring from another fund.
St.LukesHealth members who live interstate or in Southern or North-West Tasmania can continue to be served by private hospitals in those regions and are not eligible for this service unless they deliver at the LGH.
