The Courier-Mail - - NEWS -

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.
