Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital has a 14 bed Paediatric Unit with four isolation rooms. The Unit caters for newborns to adolescents 16 years of age. The Unit provides general paediatric, orthopaedic, surgical, ENT and MRI services.

The Paediatric Unit is dedicated to the high quality medical and nursing management of children and their families. We have highly experienced and dedicated clinical staffs who are affiliated with both the Sydney Children's Hospitals Network (Randwick and Westmead). We also provide training for clinical staff from other tertiary level hospitals and universities including the University of New South Wales, the University of Western Sydney, the University of Technology Sydney, the University of Notre Dame, and the University of Tasmania.
