The Women's and Children's Hospital is located on the traditional lands for the Kaurna people, and we respect their spiritual relationship with their Country. We also acknowledge that the Kaurna people are the custodians of the Adelaide region, and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.

Paediatric Medicine

The Division of Paediatric Medicine is the largest Women's and Children's Hospital division, and aims to provide high quality health care for children and young people in an environment which meets their needs and the needs of their families.

Services include general and specialised medical services for children and young people as inpatients, outpatients and in the community. These include outpatient clinics across a broad range of specialties and a busy Paediatric Emergency Department.

The Division has close links to other services including the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Lyell McEwin Hospital and the University of Adelaide.
