I had Ella in Hervey Bay. I lived there for about 24 1/2yrs. Only just moved last year as my hubby got a job in the mines. The hospital in general is pretty good, nice because its still new. Chances of getting your own room is high as they have like 6 single rooms & about 4 dbl rooms from memory. There are a few grumpy midwives but generally they're pretty friendly. But remember to speak up (this is when you've had the baby & staying there) as they tend to forget about you & forget to give you drugs! Well they did in my case anyway. Doctors are all pretty good, I dealt with Dr Wicky a fair bit- he is apparently one of the best ones there.
Anyway, if you have any questions about the hospital or Hervey Bay in general let us know, I'd be more than happy to answer any questions!
Good luck with your pregnancy, hope all goes well.
Carlie, Ella & Ky
