Telethon Kids Institute
The Telethon Kids Institute will take up residence within the Perth Children's Hospital building. With more than 500 dedicated staff and students, the new facility will offer a state-of-the-art research environment.
This will enable researchers from the Telethon Institute to work alongside some of Western Australia’s most innovative and progressive child health clinicians, ensuring strong and progressive collaboration in the fight against childhood illness and disease.

Perth Children's Hospital Foundation
As the hospital’s official fundraising body, Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation (formerly PMH Foundation) will move with us to the Perth Children's Hospital building.
The Foundation and hospital work closely together to identify opportunities to fund a range of initiatives to ensure both the existing PMH and the new children’s hospital are as patient focused and family friendly as possible.
Since its inception in 1998, the Foundation has been the conduit for over $65 million in financial support to projects at PMH and Perth Children’s Hospital. This incredible generosity helps to fund vital medical equipment, specialist staff, education and training, research and a range complimentary services.

Ronald McDonald House
The new Ronald McDonald House which will be built on the southern side of the QEII site, will feature 47 family rooms capable of sleeping between 160 to 180 people on any given night and is projected to help 1000 families every year. This will effectively triple the current capacity and include new facilities such as isolation units and extended family and long stay units.
