Hospital name now official
QUEENSLAND’S Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in South Brisbane has officially been renamed as the Queensland Children’s Hospital.
Children’s Health Queensland CEO Fionnagh Dougan emailed staff yesterday to inform them of the change. Ms Dougan said new signage would go up in “coming weeks”.
The news was slammed by Lady Cilento’s family who called for a review.
“We are yet to hear one valid reason for this name change and believe all those involved should be ashamed of themselves,” the family said.
Lady Phyllis Cilento was a pioneering Australian medical practitioner and author.
