Lady Cilento Children's Hospital

The Queensland Government is building Lady Cilento Children's Hospital (LCCH) on a site adjacent to Mater Children's Hospital, between Stanley Street and Raymond Terrace.

In late 2014, the new Lady Cilento Children's Hospital will open, bringing together Mater Children's Hospital with Royal Children's Hospital at one facility in South Brisbane. This facility will be owned and operated by Queensland Health. Children currently cared for at Mater Children's Hospital will transfer their care to this new facility and details of this transition will be made available as plans progress.
