Relative waiting area
Sometimes you may need to spend some time waiting for a friend or relative while they conduct their business at Figtree Private Hospital. You may like to relax in the area outside Reception (front entrance) where there are newspapers and a television. There is also a small room located outside the Intensive Care Unit where you can be asked to wait for patients returning from theatre or patients undergoing treatment in the Intensive Care Unit.
