Creche & Rural Mothers


King Edward Memorial Hospital has a creche onsite to assist parents with outpatient appointments and visitation to the NICU. Children aged 8 weeks to 7 years are able to attend for short periods between 8am and 3.45pm. Further information on the creche service can be found here.

Rural Mothers

Mothers travelling to King Edward Memorial Hospital for the birth of their baby and subsequent NICU/SCN stay may be eligible to stay at Agnus Walsh House, onsite at KEMH, at no charge. Accommodation is basic and for mothers only. Discuss this option with the nurses on the ward or your allocated social worker.
