The Children, Young People and Families Directorate of Hunter New England Local Health District integrates a range of health care services designed to meet the ever-changing health needs of babies, children, young people and their families.
This single network brings together the vast range of hospital and community-based services in the Lake Macquarie, Upper and Lower Hunter, Port Stephens, Lower Mid North Coast and Greater Newcastle regions. Children's services at hospitals across the region include, John Hunter Children's Hospital, Manning, Maitland, Cessnock, Kurri Kurri, Muswellbrook, Scone and Singleton as well as a wide range of community-based services including mental health.
Each year our district’s hospitals care for an increasing number of children and young people. This growing demand adds extra pressure to replace or buy the newest equipment, provide specialist programs and provide healthcare support for families in need.
It is because of your support that we will be able to continue to improve the quality of life and care our young patients receive now and in the future.
