Hospital Care & Stays

Allowah Presbyterian Children’s Hospital is a fully accredited and licensed medical and rehabilitation paediatric hospital – and we are a hospital like no other.

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’s 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 the hospital for a range of reasons, such as seizure management, dystonia management, dysphagia management and aspiration prevention, pressure area care, gastrostomy management and more. Admissions may be overnight or for a day admission. Children are admitted under the care of the admitting medical practitioner. No referral is required.

A home away from home
"Allowah has provided a home away from home for our severely disabled daughter.
She is much loved and expertly cared for by dedicated medical and allied health care professionals. The management team are very open to feedback and suggestions, and we greatly appreciate their compassion and ongoing support. A truly amazing place for children with very special needs."
