Grace Centre for Newborn Care

The Grace Centre for Newborn Care serves about 600 babies a year who need complex surgery around the time of birth. The Centre consists of a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), a High Dependency Unit and a Developmental Follow-up Clinic.  Our Research Department has an international reputation for research into all aspects of care for these infants, including their long term outcomes.

The aim of our research is to improve clinical practice. For example, we have found that infants who undergo major surgery are at risk of developmental delay, so we are tailoring our follow-up services to provide the best possible outcomes for these children.

Our researchers collaborate with multiple departments within the Sydney Children's Hospital Network, national and international colleagues. We also work collaboratively on many projects with the Cerebral Palsy Alliance.
