Princess Margaret Hospital for Children
The former Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) was WA's Child and Adolescent Health Service until 2018, when a new specialist paediatric hospital and trauma centre was completed, known as Perth Children's Hospital. Whilst in operation, PMH was a 220-bed, internationally recognised paediatric facility that treated children and adolescents from around the state with approximately 250,000 patient visits (inpatient and outpatient) each year. In addition to providing hospital-based care, the Child and Adolescent Health Service was committed to population health and ambulatory care programs aimed at providing services for children and adolescents to promote life-long health. This included preventing health problems through promoting wellbeing, early detection of diseases and intervention and provision of services in the community rather than a hospital setting. All of these services have now been taken over by the Perth Children's Hospital.
