In August 2018, Telethon Kids moved to our current facility at the Perth Children’s Hospital (PCH) on the QEII Medical Centre campus. Our co-location with PCH and other health and research organisations allows for greater collaboration between our researchers, clinicians, nurses and allied health professionals to deliver better outcomes for children.

With a footprint across seven floors of PCH, our purpose-built facility features more than 7000sqm of workspace and 2000sqm of laboratories, as well as dedicated clinical suites and a cryogenics facility.
