New facilities coming soon

A bigger, modern women's and children's unit is on the way

Expanded facilities for women, children and babies are the centrepiece of a $217 million development at LRH which will open at the start of 2024.

The new unit will feature:

  • 6 birthing suites with a central monitoring system to watch over you
  • 24 beds with access to a terrace overlooking the ranges
  • assessment and consultation spaces
  • 12 cot special care nursery with state-of-the-art medical service pendants and monitoring systems for your baby
  • 10 bed paediatric unit with an outdoor play area and an indoor playroom featuring an interactive digital wall to engage young patients.


The unit also includes a quiet lounge for parents, amenities and parent areas within rooms so they are able to support their children during their stay.
