Our performance

We measure our performance in line with the Hospital and Health Boards Act 2011, as well as against a range of health care standards set by our Board, the Queensland Government and federal government agencies.

As part of our commitment to meeting community expectations, the Queensland Children’s Hospital was built to address the specific health care needs of children and young people. Since opening its doors to patients in November 2014, the hospital’s performance has been measured against health care benchmarks, other hospital and health services and data from previous years. Tracking our performance in this way helps us identify key areas needing improvement so we can continuously improve.
