About us


The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network is the largest paediatric health care service in Australia.

Transforming health care for children and young people

Our strategic priorities and objectives guide us as we transform the health and wellbeing of children and young people now, and into the future.

About us

The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network incorporates The Children's Hospital at Westmead, Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick, Bear Cottage, the Newborn and paediatric Emergency Transport Service (NETS) and the Children's Court Clinic.

We care for up to 170,000 children every year across our hospitals at Westmead and Randwick. Of those, 100,000 are Emergency Department presentations and 60,000 admissions.

Since our formation in 2010 we have grown to a team of more than 8,000 staff, all committed to providing world-class paediatric health care in a family-focused, healing environment.
