We're committed to providing life-changing healthcare for children and young people for a healthier tomorrow.

About the Queensland Children's Hospital

The Queensland Children's Hospital (QCH) (formerly The Lady Cilento Children's Hospital), which opened on 29 November 2014, is Australia's largest and most advanced paediatric facility.
