Lady Cilento Children's Hospital

iconThe Lady Cilento Children's Hospital (LCCH) opened on 29 November 2014 and is currently Australia's largest and most advanced paediatric facility. For the first time in Queensland all paediatric specialities are housed under the one roof allowing families to access the care, advice and support they need in one place.
iconThe hospital caters to a local catchment for emergency presentations and is the state's paediatric referral hospital for complex conditions.
iconIt supports regional hospitals through Telemedicine, outreach services and a connected care network for children who have complex needs that require coordination of primary, community and acute healthcare services.

Training and research are pivotal to improving health outcomes for children and young people. To achieve this outcome, an adjacent Centre for Children's Health Research (opening early 2015) will house partners which include Queensland Health through Children's Health Queensland, the Queensland Children's Medical Research Institute, Queensland University of Technology, University of Queensland and the Translational Research Institute.

Paediatric researchers will work together in one location creating an integrated hub of specialist knowledge dedicated to translating research findings into better healthcare for children and young people.
