The Hospital Accommodation Unit manages accommodation for parents/carers of children admitted to the hospital. For information contact the Accommodation Co-ordinator on (02) 9845 2958.

On the ward - bedside

Single sofa beds are provided free of charge at each child's bedside, except in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). For these parents, please see the Parents' Hostel information.

As space is limited at bedside, there is room for only one parent to stay with each child on the ward.

On the ward - room

Most wards have a parent bedroom (for one or two people) which is allocated by the Nursing Unit Manager based on the medical needs of the children in the ward.

Parents' hostel

The Parents' Hostel on Level 2 has a small number of single rooms that can sleep up to two adults. Priority is given to families with children in ICU and NICU. Charges apply.

Please note: children (with the exception of breastfed babies) are not allowed in the Parents' Hostel.

Ronald McDonald House

This facility is available for country families and families who need to stay at the Hospital for a long time.
For more information, contact the Ronald McDonald House Manager on (02) 9845 0600. 

Country families - accommodation assistance

A reimbursement scheme - The NSW Isolated Patients' Travel and Accommodation Scheme (IPTAAS) - for rural families living over 100kms from the Hospital, offers assistance with travel and accommodation expenses. Your G.P. or a Social Worker & the Accommodation Co-ordinator at the Hospital will be able to give you more information about IPTAAS. For more information please click here.
