Women's and children's services are provided in the Joan Kirner Women's and Children's at Sunshine Hospital, which opened on Wednesday 15th May 2019. This facility provides inpatient and outpatient women's and children's services in a family friendly environment and enables more women and families in Melbourne’s west to give birth and access children’s services closer to home.
This new multi-storey facility features 20 labour delivery rooms, 39 Special Care Nursery cots, 64 women’s inpatient beds, 32 children’s inpatient beds, four operating theatres and additional outpatient clinics. As part of the project, 55 existing acute adult inpatient beds at Sunshine Hospital will also be refurbished.
