Paediatric High Care Ward

Clinical Nurse Consultant (CNC):  Anne Morgan - (02) 6174 7689

Location: Building 11, Level 1

The Paediatric High Care Ward has 12 beds and provides care to very unwell children and those with complex needs, and their families.

The level of intervention and monitoring available can mean that more unwell children can be cared for in Canberra rather than being transferred to a children’s hospital in Sydney. 

Some children will still need to be transferred to Sydney, and the High Care Ward can provide safe care until then.

The Paediatric High Care Ward also provides specialised care for infants and children who may require long-term hospitalisation.

Families of long term patients are encouraged to be very involved in their child’s care and work towards taking over as the main provider of complex medical care to enable their transition home.
