Sydney Children's Hospital Network
The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network was formed in 2010, creating a single management structure for The Children's Hospital at Westmead and Sydney Children’s Hospital.
The Network brings together the advanced facilities, expertise and services of Sydney’s children’s hospitals to provide the very best care for sick children and their families. This is a milestone in the long and distinguished history of the two hospitals that were first established in the late 1800’s.
The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network is the largest paediatric healthcare entity in Australia, with 50,000 inpatient admissions, over 92,000 Emergency Department presentations and over one million outpatient occasions of service each year.
The team of 5000 staff across the Network are committed to providing world-class paediatric health care in a family-focussed, healing environment.
Sick children have access to the best facilities across the Network, with speciality care available for children with conditions such as cancer, heart problems, severe burns, HIV/AIDS and children needing organ, bone marrow or cord blood transplants.
Ground-breaking research into the causes, treatments and cures of many childhood illnesses is undertaken across the Network, changing the face of healthcare on an international scale. Hundreds of staff across the Sydney Children's Hospitals Network are committed to undertaking world-leading research that can be directly translated into enhanced clinical care.
NETS, the Newborn and Paediatric Emergency Transport Service, the Pregnancy and Newborn Services Network (PSN) and the Children’s Court Clinic also joined the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network in 2011.Web Address: http://www.schn.health.nsw.gov.au/
