The Children’s Hospital at Westmead cares for more than 87,000 children every year. It is home to the NSW Paediatric Burns Unit, the Paediatric Liver Transplant Unit, the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance, the NSW Newborn Screening Service and National Poisons Information Centre, as well as the first Paediatric Tumour Bank in the southern hemisphere.
End-of-life and respite care for seriously ill children is provided by Bear Cottage, the only children's hospice in NSW.
Research is one of the key ways in which the hospital provides the highest standard of care to sick children and their families. Kids Research leads research into childhood diseases, resulting in significant advances in the treatment of cancer, obesity, kidney, heart and respiratory illnesses, diabetes and muscular dystrophy.
