Medical & Nursing
For over 60 years we have been supporting children with complex disabilities and medical needs. Our family-centred approach maximises quality of life for children and their carers.
Allowah is a modern and bright facility in Dundas Valley, NSW. We support children and young people from birth to the age of eighteen who have moderate to severe disabilities and medical needs – such as genetic or chromosomal disorders, birth trauma, cerebral palsy, head injuries, and conditions acquired after birth.
Allowah Presbyterian Children’s Hospital is a fully accredited and licensed hospital – but we are a hospital like no other. Allowah is a medical and rehabilitation paediatric hospital, and our medical team provides 24 hour care. The children we support often require a high level of medical care and are at the centre of our service delivery. Our staff are exceptional in the way they care for the children.
When a child who has moderate to severe disabilities and complex health needs becomes unwell, it is good to know that Allowah has the skills and facilities to care for them. We admit children to Allowah for a range of reasons, such as seizure management, spasticity management, feeding assessment and aspiration care and prevention, pressure area care, PEG and wound care and the like. Admissions may be overnight or for a day admission. Children are admitted under the care of the admitting medical practitioner. No referral is required.
