The San’s Children’s Ward
Sydney Adventist Hospital's Children's Ward provides families with a warm, caring environment in which children receive the very best of care. Whether being treated for a medical illness or recovering after surgery children are cared for by expert Paediatric Specialists and skilled Paediatric Nurses.
Paediatric surgery specialists routinely perform a range of day and overnight procedures. Day stay procedures include minor surgical procedures such as tonsils/adenoids, grommets, hernias and circumcisions. These children are cared for with parents at their side and discharged when they have fully recovered from anaesthesia. Overnight procedures may include fracture surgery, appendectomy and orthopaedic surgery.
In addition to paediatric surgery SAH offers a range paediatric medical services which include emergency admissions for upper respiratory, convulsions, wound infections and gastrointestinal illnesses.
