Perth Children's Hospital

Perth Children's Hospital

Our children’s health facilities are expanding, including one of the largest health infrastructure projects in the state – the new $1.2 billion Perth Children’s Hospital.

When it opens the new family-friendly hospital will have 298 beds, 12 operating theatres and provide access to the latest facilities, all specifically designed around the needs of children and their support networks.

Located in the heart of the Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre in Nedlands, the hospital will form part of a centre of excellence for health and research and host major paediatric research and education initiatives led by the Telethon Kids Institute and the University of Western Australia.

Perth Children’s Hospital will be the specialist paediatric hospital and trauma centre for WA. But it’s part of a much bigger healthcare picture, with other new and expanded facilities for families and children around the State.
