Information for our younger patients


Hi! We're Stella and Tai. We've written a storybook, to explain to young patients what's likely to happen if you receive treatment at a Southern Cross hospital. We've also included some fun puzzles!


We encourage parents and carers to stay with their children in hospital. Please contact the hospital regarding availability of space and associated charges should you wish to stay overnight. If you would like to visit the hospital, to familiarise your child with the surroundings prior to admission, please contact the hospital.

Car parking

Due to ongoing building work, our patient and visitor car parking has changed. Details can be found on this map. We have dedicated free parking at Bowlarama and The National Dance and Drama School. These car parks are clearly marked for use by Southern Cross.

Our Robotics

The global and local landscape of robotic navigation and assisted surgery has undergone rapid technical evolution. Robotics are tailored to enhance the performance and outcomes for surgeons and patients. We have worked closely in partnership with our credentialled medical practitioners to integrate this cutting-edge technology to ensure we deliver excellent experiences for both our surgeons and patients.
