Perth Children’s Hospital is Western Australia’s only dedicated paediatric hospital and provides tertiary services for the State. The 298 bed hospital provides inpatient, ambulatory and outpatient services. PCH is also the home of WA’s only paediatric trauma centre, the State’s first intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging machine and the Stan Perron Immunisation Centre, which is available to all children and families attending the hospital to help them stay up to date with their scheduled immunisations.
Led by Chief Executive, Dr Aresh Anwar, and Board Chair, Debbie Karasinski AM, Perth Children’s Hospital is one of four services provided by the Child and Adolescent Health Service (CAHS), along with Neonatology, Community Health and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. CAHS provides a comprehensive service that supports the health, wellbeing and development of Western Australians from birth through to adulthood.
Our vision is healthy kids, healthy communities, and in striving for this vision, we endeavour to give children and young people the best start in life through health promotion, early identification and intervention, and patient centre, family-focused care.
