Lord Mayor Welcomes Early Childhood Centre to Kings Cross
Lord Mayor Clover Moore welcomed the Sydney Children's Hospital Early Childhood Centre back to Kings Cross at a ceremony in the Centre today at 10.30am.
The Centre, offering health services to generations of mothers and babies in Kings Cross and surrounding suburbs, is managed by Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick in a facility provided by Sydney City Council.
The Hospital's Executive Director, Professor Les White, sees the Centre as a creative partnership between Sydney City Council and Sydney Children's Hospital.
'Kings Cross and Woolloomooloo in particular are high need areas where we deliver a range of services to improve the health and wellbeing of infants. Mothers can come to our walk-in Centre and, where necessary, our Centre goes out to the mothers and babies in the community,' he says.
'There have been considerable demographic changes in this area over the years and this Centre has always responded to them. We will continue to do that in the future.'
Sydney Children's Hospital Randwick is one of three tertiary centres for child health in NSW. It has a long history of state-wide involvement in child health services and education, providing outreach services and networking with local community services.
The Kings Cross Early Childhood Centre is located in the Reginald Murphy Community Centre at 19 Greenknowe Avenue, Potts Point and is open two days a week - Tuesday and Wednesday. Phone: 93574851.
