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.
