we care for kids and would love to care for yours
The Memorial Hospital has a dedicated paediatric ward, staffed with trained and experienced paediatric nursing staff. Our accommodation is a mix of single, shared and open bay rooms. Bed allocation is based on your child's clinical needs, it is often the Doctor's preference for paediatric patients to be nursed in an open bay for close observation. It is expected that one parent / carer will stay overnight with your child. Suitable facilities are provided.
Our Paediatric Specialties include:
- Paediatric Allergy Testing
- Lively Eaters Program
- Orthopaedic Surgery
- Otorhinolaryngology (Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery)
- Paediatric Sleep Studies
- Paediatric Surgery
- Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
At The Memorial Hospital, we make every effort to help our young patients feel at ease.
We offer a range of amenities and services to support their stay:
- Kid's menu
- Activities pack on arrival
- Wi-Fi access, TV and DVDs
- Kitchen facilities
A parent / carer is required to accompany their child whilst they are an inpatient on the ward. Parents / carers are asked to escort their child to the operating theatre.
Coming to hospital can be a stressful time for both children and their families and it can be helpful and reassuring to know what to expect. For further information on Memorial KIDS, please contact us on 08 8366 3435.
