Westmead Childrens Hospital
At Westmead Childrens Hospital, the staff are dedicated to Paediatrics being an extremely diverse team of individuals. The Care Centre, established in 1995, provides world class treatment for all children’s illnesses and emergencies, accidents, burns, transplants and cancer. It is quite critical that we help Westmead Children’s Hospital not only in treating children but in assisting them with aid for research.
Each and every one of us makes a vital contribution to the health and welfare of children no matter what task we performThe Childrens Hospital at Westmead
Westmead Childrens Hospital is quite unique and understands the importance of minimising the length of hospital stays, to help minimise children’s’ experiences of anxiety.
As part of this initiative, they have been expanding their Outreach Services so that some children don’t need to visit the hospital at all! Of course, this takes a lot of extra work and co-ordination, but the benefits to the children and their families are well worth it. Some things included in this program:
- Doctors visiting children in their homes
- Intravenous and oxygen therapy for children in their homes, and
- Day treatment centres
As Outreach clinics expand their presence in the community, more and more children will have access to the best medical care.
