ACHS Welcomes back Children’s Health Queensland

ACHS is very pleased to welcome back former member, Children’s Health Queensland.

We recently visited the team at Children’s Health Queensland (CHQ) to celebrate our partnership and share in the wonderful work they do caring for children and young people from across Queensland and northern New South Wales.

As a recognised leader in paediatric healthcare, education and research, CHQ deliver a full range of clinical services, tertiary and quaternary care and health promotion programs.  

CHQ deliver responsive, integrated, high-quality, person-centred care through a network of professionals, services and facilities, incorporating the:

  • Queensland Children’s Hospital
  • Child and Youth Community Health Service
  • Child and Youth Mental Health Service
  • Statewide services and programs, including specialist outreach and telehealth services

CHQ’s commitment to people, partnerships, equity and innovation in order to provide the best care for Queensland children and young people is internationally recognised through their Gold Certification in Person-Centred Care by Planetree International.  CHQ are the first paediatric healthcare provider in the Southern Hemisphere to achieve Gold Certification and the first and only (paediatric or otherwise) in Australia.

This person-centred care approach considers children, young people and their families as true partners in their care, and places individual social, emotional, cultural, mental and physical care needs at the heart of their healthcare journey.

ACHS are working with CHQ to ensure a strong paediatric and young person care response to the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards.

We are looking forward to an ongoing relationship with CHQ as a valued ACHS member over the next three years and beyond.
