BY THE NUMBERS
Queensland Children’s Hospital treated about 13,000 inpatients from regional Queensland and northern NSW over the past year. The Children’s Hospital Foundation provides a range of support services for sick children and young people attending QCH and hospitals across Queensland. About $1.7 million of CHF funds has been invested in regional pediatric wards. More than 42 per cent of children visiting hospitals in Brisbane come from regional areas and many of these are the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in Queensland.
