The Children’s Hospital at Westmead (NSW)

The Children’s Hospital at Westmead is the largest paediatric centre in NSW specialising in treating seriously ill children.

The hospital provides specialist care for children from around Australia and across the Pacific Rim as well as community education, advocacy for improved child health and ground-breaking research into childhood illnesses, all in a positive, caring and healing environment.

Founded in 1880, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead is a public hospital looking after more than 80,000 sick children and their families each year. This includes around 32,000 inpatient admissions, 57,000 emergency department presentations and more than 886,000 outpatient visits.

This year, the Amway One By One Foundation has donated $19,000 to the Children’s Hospital at Westmead to fund an IntelliVue MX800 Patient Monitor that is now located in the Grace Centre for Newborn Care, a specialised unit that provides intensive care for high-risk newborns.

Combining patient monitoring and clinical informatics data, a clinician can get an accurate picture of a child's condition to diagnose and treat the child quickly. This machine will be used for their most critical patients in our highest acuity areas.

The Amway One By One Foundation is a Lifetime Partner of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and has donated $321,485 since 2011. Amway staff and Independent Business Owners have also participated in volunteering opportunities and charity initiatives with the hospital including arts and crafts days, hospital tours, and Superhero Week.
