The Royal Children’s Hospital expansion will deliver:

  • the fit out of a new 30-bed paediatric inpatient ward
  • an additional 20 emergency department treatment spaces.

The Royal Children's Hospital expansion project aims to achieve the following benefits:

Specialist care

The Royal Children’s Hospital is one of Victoria’s leading paediatric hospitals, providing specialist care for children in Victoria, Tasmania, southern New South Wales and other states around Australia. It is also the designated major trauma centre for paediatrics, providing Paediatric, Infant and Perinatal Emergency Retrieval (PIPER) services and is a nationally funded centre for paediatric heart, lung and liver transplantation.

Expanded services

The expansion of the paediatric inpatient ward and additional emergency department treatment spaces will increase capacity of acute paediatric bed-based services and emergency services for young Australians. Additional capacity will assist in improving patient wait times, and enable the hospital to meet increased demand for specialist paediatric treatment and care.

This project is being delivered by the Victorian Health Building Authority under the Partnerships Victoria (PPP) program in partnership with The Royal Children’s Hospital and Kane Constructions.
