The new Royal Children's Hospital is the largest hospital redevelopment undertaken by the State Government of Victoria.

The new facility features over 5,000 rooms, with a capacity for 240,000 patients a year, 230 emergency patients a day, and 4,000 staff. This state-of-the-art facility provides a stimulating and colourful environment for younger and older people alike.
