Congratulations to the Queensland Children’s Hospital, which has again been recognised as one of the top paediatric hospitals in the world.

Queensland Children’s Hospital has ranked 10th in this year’s Newsweek’s Best Specialized Hospitals 2024 list out of 250 paediatric hospitals – the highest ranked in the Southern Hemisphere.

More than 40,000 medical doctors, healthcare professionals, hospital managers and directors are invited to participate in this global industry survey. The ranking reflects Queensland Children’s Hospital’s world-class care and support for patients and their families.

You have helped make this possible through funding cutting-edge equipment, vital research and on the ground support.

Minister for Health, Mental Health and Ambulance Services and Minister for Women, the Honourable Shannon Fentiman said the peer-nominated global rating was a testament to the world-class care delivered by Queensland Children’s Hospital clinicians.

“Despite the extraordinary pressures created by COVID-19 in the past four years, their commitment to delivering the best care to the more than 1,000 children and young people they treat every day has not waivered.

“This well-deserved independent recognition reflects the Queensland Children’s Hospital’s growing international reputation for providing the best health care for children and young people.”

Children’s Hospital Foundation CEO, Lyndsey Rice congratulated the Queensland Children’s Hospital on the incredible reputation that doctors, nurses and allied health professionals have cultivated across the years.

“For a hospital that is less than 10 years old, Queensland Children’s Hospital continues to lead the way in paediatric healthcare in Australia and around the world.

“At the Foundation, we are thrilled to support the Hospital’s excellent reputation to improve the health and wellbeing of children and young people for generations to come,” she added.
