First year of treatment rooms for kids

Close to 20,000 of Canberra’s youngest patients have had a more comfortable wait for treatment in the ACT’s first Paediatric Streaming area, which is part of Canberra Hospital’s Emergency Department.

Splashes of bright colours, native fish and birds are part of the design in the triage and treatment areas.

The facility has now been operating for a year and includes six beds, two consultation rooms and a private waiting area.
