Welcome to the Children's Health Queensland Clinical Unit at the Queensland Children’s Hospital. 

The Queensland Children’s Hospital, which opened on 29 November 2014, is Australia’s largest and most advanced paediatric facility. Located in South Brisbane, the 359-bed hospital features more than 80,000 square meters of facilities spread across 12 levels.

The hospital is built on more than 200 years of excellence in paediatric care combining the exceptional staff and services from the former Royal Children’s Hospital and Mater Children’s Hospital.

Children, young people and their families were consulted during early planning to ensure a comfortable and supportive hospital that is not only therapeutic and practical, but also fun and engaging. At the bedside, all ages will be catered for with an interactive patient entertainment system delivering in-house radio, as well as play and recreation spaces in wards and outpatient areas.                          

Rooftop terraces, outdoor spaces, performance areas and a vibrant art collection help to deliver a hospital experience second to none.

As Queensland’s single specialist paediatric facility, Children’s Health Queensland (CHQ) at the Queensland Children’s Hospital is the hub of a dedicated network of paediatric services available at other Brisbane and Queensland hospitals. Expanding on CHQ’s state-wide remit, the Queensland Children’s Hospital also supports regional hospitals through telemedicine and outreach services. This means children and young people can access the services they need as close to home as possible.

The hospital precinct includes the Centre for Children’s Health Research, the Children’s Hospital Foundation, Ronald McDonald House South Brisbane (opened in 2016) and a new Adolescent Drug and Alcohol Withdrawal Service building.
