The Royal Children’s Hospital 150 Year Anniversary
Wednesday 9 September 2020
On this day 150 years ago, The Melbourne Free Hospital for Sick Children opened its doors with just six beds. Today, The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) Melbourne is a world leading paediatric institution, providing great care to Victoria’s sickest and most vulnerable children and young people.
From 7 to 11 September, we celebrate by sharing a collection of stories from staff, patients and the community on what the RCH means to them. We are incredibly proud of our achievements over 150 years from such humble beginnings.
Join us online as we reflect on uncovered digital content from our archives, and chart our visions for the future.
