Life Kidz: Paediatric

About Life Kidz Paediatric

Life Kidz is the paediatric arm of Life Healthcare: a safe, peaceful and healthy environment where your child can receive medical care. We understand your anxiety when you bring your child to a hospital, so our caring paediatricians and staff do everything they can to make your visit stress-free, whether or not you’re a first-time parent.

Our paediatric wards have been created with the intention of making children feel comfortable and at ease. We take care to address the needs of every little person who enters our facilities with kindness and compassion, including treating various infectious diseases, general surgery, and the management of a range of illnesses. We have developed general guidelines to ensure a safe, peaceful and healthy environment for your child in our paediatric wards – you can read more about it in our Life Kidz paediatric ward tips.

Our unit manager is available to discuss any concerns or questions you may have.
