Mater Children's Hospital transition to Lady Cilento Children's Hospital

On 29 November 2014, Mater Children's Hospital (MCH) and Emergency Department closed and services transferred into the new government-owned and operated Lady Cilento Children's Hospital (LCCH). This closure brings to an end 83 years of service to the Queensland community.

LCCH is now the public hospital for children in Brisbane and Queensland's hospital for serious childhood injury and illness. Mater will no longer provide publicly funded services through Mater Children’s Hospital. However, Mater Children’s Private Brisbane will continue to offer paediatric services for families who choose to self-finance or who have private health insurance.

Please remove any referral forms for Mater Children’s Hospital from your system. To assist GPs with referrals to the new hospital a detailed referral section has been published to the Children’s Health Queensland website with important guidelines for referrals available in the Health professionals section.

Thank you for your support of Mater Children’s Hospital.
