Paediatric Unit

Darwin Private Hospital offers a medical and surgical private paediatric service in a fun and family friendly environment for the community.

Our dedicated and intimate paediatric ward includes the following features:

  • Secured outdoor play area for children to go outside and play or relax in a safe environment
  • Comfortable family room with a lounge area with a big TV, toys and colouring-in table.
  • Kids menu that caters to all dietary requirements, as well as a meal provided to a carer.

The unit is run by a team of specialised and highly skilled nurses and leading paediatricians who are there to help through this time and answer any questions or concerns that may arise.

Staffed 24 hours a day by our paediatric nurses, we can provide care for children from one month to 12 years, with specialised equipment so that children are in the safest care possible.

Parents/carers are encouraged to stay with their child at all times.
