How to help
Our 20th Anniversary is an important milestone, not just a reason to celebrate the past
two decades of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, but to imagine the possibilities for
the years ahead.
Back in 1995, it was wonderful to move into our new Hospital, full of promise of things
to come, lives to save. But our Hospital has never just been about our buildings or
equipment, our backbone is our people. Our staff and volunteers, the children and families
in our care and our valued supporters in the community are at the true heart of what we do.
Within this Annual Review, we have chosen four focus areas – neurology, cardiology, cancer
and liver transplants – to demonstrate the work of our Hospital, how far we have come since
1995 and our vision for the future.
Please know that the impact of your ongoing support is felt throughout the Hospital
– in the corridors, in the operating theatres, by the bedsides and behind the scenes in
research labs. As donors, you are such a special and integral part of our Hospital. As the
years tick by we need your ongoing help and support to ensure our facilities remain at a
world-class standard.
It is my hope you will share our vision and enthusiasm for the future. We can continue
to evolve paediatric health care and use research to unlock some of the greatest medical
challenges of our generation. Many more young lives can be saved if we continue to
work together.
Thank you for your support, your time and your kindness. I wholeheartedly assure you that
together we are making a very real and positive difference to sick children and their families..

Bear Cottage
This year a number of milestones
were reached within our liver and
kidney transplant programs. A record
number of life-saving liver transplants
were performed and we reached
a total of 300 liver transplants
and 150 kidney transplants.
We launched the ‘Footprints in the
Sand’ program at our dedicated
children’s hospice, Bear Cottage,
at Manly. With a record number
of bereaved families to care for,
Bear Cottage launched the program
to provide ongoing support to families
whose child has passed away.
Surgeons also transplanted a liver into
a tiny six-week old baby, Australia’s
youngest ever transplant recipient.
This was in response to the needs of
families and the strong connection
they feel to Bear Cottage, even after
the death of their child.
World First
Hospital in the Home
In a world first, doctors and
researchers at The Children’s Hospital
at Westmead are hoping to find a way
to delay or prevent the onset of juvenile
diabetes by infusing patients with their
own umbilical cord blood.
In an Australian first, The Children’s
Hospital at Westmead adapted the
‘Hospital in the Home’ model of
care to provide home care for a
two-year old boy on the waiting list
for a heart transplant.
It is hoped that the cord blood will
help ‘reboot’ the immune system to
prevent diabetes, which occurs when
the body attacks and kills its own
insulin-producing cells.
This allowed clinicians to provide
care in the comfort of the child’s
home to avoid spending over
100 days in hospital.
Celebration Bell
3D Printing
A celebration bell was recently installed
in the Oncology Clinic as a symbol of
hope to mark the end of treatment for
young cancer patients.
The Centre for Children’s Bone
and Musculoskeletal Health
was established, including a
3D Orthopaedics Laboratory for
engineering and prototyping bone
implants for children using
3D printing technology.
The beautiful ship’s bell is designed to
acknowledge and celebrate the journey
of cancer patients and their families and
was installed after a suggestion from
parents of children who had already
been through cancer treatment.
This innovative treatment
approach is expected to dramatically
improve outcomes for children with
orthopaedic conditions.
The Children’s Hospital at Westmead’s
Diploma of Child Health Program
recently celebrated the graduation of
the first cohort of doctors and nurses
from their International Postgraduate
Paediatric Certificate in Zimbabwe.
Outcomes for patients have been
dramatically improved thanks to
the purchase of a range of medical
equipment with donated funds.
The program has been running for
23 years, educating doctors and nurses
in remote and developing countries.
Some of the key items donated this
year are a $2 million CT scanner, a
ventilator and for the Grace Centre
for Newborn Care, an additional bed
for the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit,
temporary pacemakers for cardiac
patients and monitors for babies at risk
of SIDS disease.
on 20 Years
Friday 6 November 2015 marks
20 years since The Children’s
Hospital at Westmead opened
its doors to begin a new era
of paediatric health care in
Sydney’s west.
In the past 20 years we have
touched the lives of many children
and families from NSW and beyond.
We had treated 530,000 inpatients,
almost one million emergency cases
and have performed 280,000
operations on babies and children.
Our 20th Anniversary is an
important milestone, not just to
celebrate the past 20 years, but also
to look forward to the next 20 years,
continuing to push the boundaries
of child health and improve and
save the lives of many more children
when they need us most.

EEG Monitoring
Care in focus
Neurological disorders affect the brain, spinal cord and nerves and can have a significant
impact on the quality of life of children and their families. Neurological disorders can be
caused by a range of different problems such as genetic disease, infection or trauma.
Some neurological conditions are life threatening, severely affect a child’s quality of life
and can cause a life-long disability.
At The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, the Neurology and Neurosurgery team is skilled
in the use of innovative techniques and technology to investigate and treat neurological
disorders. The team has pioneered some of these techniques in children in Australia.
Surgeons are accomplished in the intricacies of paediatric brain and spinal surgery and
rare disorders are diagnosed and treated in conjunction with Genetics Specialists.
Diagnosing brain disorders requires the very best equipment and technology, with major
funding from community donations.
The Epilepsy Monitoring Unit was established in 2011 thanks to donations and has doubled
the Hospital’s capacity to provide life-changing surgery to children with epilepsy. This has
been a significant boost as 14,000 children in NSW have epilepsy and, for almost 30%,
medication poorly controls their disease.

“ The
Westmead has given Eliza
a second chance at life.
She can now look to her
future with hope instead
of fear.
Watching Eliza paint, her bright eyes concentrating on the colourful detail and a playful smile
crossing her face, it’s difficult to imagine her suffering debilitating seizures every few hours.
But this was the heartbreaking reality for Eliza and her family when she was diagnosed with
severe epilepsy at just five years old.
“We felt so scared, anxious and helpless. The fear of the unknown was, at times,
overwhelming,” Eliza’s Mum, Julia, said.
Doctors at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead knew of a revolutionary new surgery
that had never been done on a child before in Australia and decided Eliza was the perfect
candidate. It wasn’t a risk-free operation though, with doctors warning Eliza’s family that
the risks included stroke and loss of vision.
The surgery, called Stereo Electro Encephalography (SEEG), involved drilling small holes
into Eliza’s skull and inserting metal rods into her brain to allow surgeons to precisely
locate where the seizures originated. Brain surgeons then removed the piece of Eliza’s brain
causing the seizures, effectively curing her epilepsy.
Eliza is now an inquisitive, fun-loving and positive girl who loves gymnastics and expressing
herself through her painting and drawing. She is growing back her beautiful blonde hair after
shaving her head for the surgery and hopes to one day become a famous artist.
“The Children’s Hospital at Westmead has given Eliza a second chance at life. She can now
look to her future with hope instead of fear,” Julia said.
“It is truly incredible how far epilepsy treatment and research has come, even in the past
few years. We feel so grateful and fortunate.”
Vision for
The brain is one of the most complex and mysterious parts of the human body, even with
today’s MRI technology which allows us to examine the structures and tissues of the brain
in great detail.
Twenty years ago, the brain was even more mysterious. Tucked away inside the skull with
limited ability to localise brain problems, doctors resorted to observing a patient’s symptoms
and taking a trial and error approach with medications and treatments.
Our team within the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery are now able to accurately
diagnose neurological conditions and offer patients and families a range of surgical options
that would have never been dreamt of when our Hospital first opened in 1995.
One of the conditions that responds best to today’s surgical options is epilepsy. As you
have seen in Eliza’s story, we were able to pinpoint where her seizures originated within
the brain and remove that section, curing her of epilepsy without losing any neurological
or physical function.
There were no surgical options for patients like Eliza 20 years ago, with patients facing
a lifetime of seizures, intellectual disability and risk of sudden death. While this surgical
approach is still not suitable for the majority of children with epilepsy, it has been a dramatic
addition to our range of options for some of the more severe cases.
We are proud of how far we have come but we know there is much more that can be done
in the future. We are beginning to scratch the surface of molecular genetics and personalised
medicine. This will have a monumental impact on diagnosis and treatment for some of the
rarer disorders we see.
We are looking towards refining our use of medicines, in some cases adapting medicines
developed for other illnesses to be part of the treatment regime for neurological patients.
In the operating theatres of the future, robotic surgery will be an increasingly important
technology for use by neurosurgeons. The convergence of new science and technologies
may allow incurable diseases such as spinal cord injury to be treated and perhaps even
one day cured.
I see a promising future ahead where diseases that are untreatable in 2015 become
treatable. We have many more lives to change, and indeed save, in the future.

Cardiac Stress Test
Care in focus
Almost one in every 100 babies born in Australia has a heart abnormality, with about
one third needing some form of surgery or other intervention. Early diagnosis is crucial,
with many major conditions now being detected while the baby is still in the womb.
Heart surgery in babies and children is delicate, with the hearts of babies being barely
the size of a walnut.
Each year more than 3,500 babies, children and adolescents with congenital heart
disease are diagnosed and treated by the Heart Centre for Children at The Children’s
Hospital at Westmead.
Donations have supported and enhanced the work of the cardiac team for many years.
Recent community support has contributed towards the upgrade of our cardiac catheter
laboratory and cardiac ultrasound machines, and fundraising towards a new heart-lung
machine is underway.

“ Jake’s

his life,
Jake’s first birthday party will be a celebration of his life, which has been hanging by
a thread more than once.
Jake was born with congenital heart disease, with a hole in his heart and his main heart
valve being too narrow to effectively pump blood around his tiny body.
“We were elated to be welcoming another boy into our family but his diagnosis was like
a bomb going off in our lives. We could not believe this was happening to our family,”
Jake’s Mum, Carli, said.
After cuddling her newborn son for less than a minute, he was whisked off to The Children’s
Hospital at Westmead for the first of many heart operations at just two days old. The most
complex operation so far was when he was six months old and his faulty heart valve was
replaced with a donor valve, an 11-hour operation during which his heart and breathing
was stopped for five hours by a state-of-the-art heart lung machine.
“This was a huge operation for my baby boy to endure. In the days after the operation he
had a cardiac arrest, seizures and developed life-threatening pneumonia. He was in the
Intensive Care Unit for 23 days. What he went through, what we went through as a family,
was almost unbearable. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone,” Carli said.
After all he has been through, it’s amazing to see how calm and content Jake is,
with a huge smile that lights up the room.
“There are simply no words to describe our feelings of elation that Jake is here with us
today. When we look at our little miracle boy we are filled with gratitude to his amazing
doctors and hope for the future” said Carli.
Vision for
Our cardiac care over the past 20 years has impacted tens of thousands of families with
children ranging in age from babies in the womb to adolescents.
I can remember sitting in a planning meeting at the old hospital in Camperdown in the
early 1990s and thinking about the next generation of paediatric heart disease care. What
resources would we need? How would care evolve over the coming years? What challenges
would we face?
One of the main areas of growth within paediatric cardiac care since we relocated to
Westmead in 1995 has been our surgery program. We provide safe, reliable, world-standard
surgery outcomes for patients, many of whom are newborn babies with complex heart defects.
Our diagnostic capabilities have developed greatly, especially through fetal cardiac imaging.
We have pioneered in interventional cardiac catheterisation, to provide minimally invasive
diagnosis and treatment of heart conditions.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death from congenital abnormalities in infants under
one year old and represents one third of all birth defects. This drives us to strive towards
refining and expanding our understanding of why these abnormalities occur and how to
provide better futures for these children and families.
One area of research and development is the genetics of congenital heart disease and how
we can use this knowledge to create new opportunities. Stem cell work is now our focus,
which will bring new possibilities for treatment opportunities that will have much improved
long-term outcomes for patients.
This is science at its best – translated from the laboratory and applied at the bedside.
We will continue to invest in our DNA Bank for Congenital Heart Disease. To date there
is no known cause for the majority of congenital heart diseases. Our research through our
DNA Bank aims to establish links between changes in genes known to be involved in
heart development and heart disease. This allows worldwide collaboration and increasing
capacity to unlock some of the mysteries of heart disease.
This and much more is possible through our ongoing commitment to improving care and
with continued support from the community.

Chemotherapy Treatment
Care in focus
There are three types of cancer that can affect children. The most common childhood
cancer is within the blood cells, known as leukaemia. There are also cancers of tissues
and organs, known as solid tumours or sarcomas, and cancer of the brain and central
nervous system.
The Cancer Centre for Children at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead is a comprehensive
referral cancer facility for children in NSW, providing medical care and support services to
over 160 new patients and their families every year.
Facilities include an accredited blood and bone marrow transplantation unit, dedicated
30-bed in-patient ward, a day-stay treatment centre and a long-term follow-up clinic to
monitor general health and long-term effects of cancer treatment on children. Metropolitan
and regional outreach support services are also provided within the community.
Over 4,000 children and adolescents with cancer have been treated by the Centre since
1980. Over 75% are alive today because of advances in therapy, supportive care and
intense research efforts.
Donations to the Cancer Centre for Children not only directly support the clinical care of
young patients but also fund pivotal research into developing more effective and less toxic
therapies and ultimately understanding how and why cancers develop in children.

Neil’s Mum, June, will never forget the moment her son turned from the computer and said,
“Mum, I think I have leukaemia.”
After Neil felt unwell for days, a doctor at their local medical centre suggested blood tests to
find out the underlying cause of his illness. After searching for the symptoms of leukaemia
online shortly after the appointment, Neil felt certain he had cancer of the blood, a diagnosis
soon confirmed by doctors at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
“It was a huge shock to us. We were devastated. Our life was turned upside down from the
moment Neil was diagnosed,” June said.
At just 10 years old, Neil embarked on a two-year journey of the latest drugs and treatment
options. It was a harrowing and demanding time for Neil and his family. The chemotherapy
took its toll on his young body and at times it seemed he just didn’t have the strength to
carry on.
Neil completed his program of therapy earlier this year when he was given the all-clear.
He is now feeling strong and healthy again and is excelling at high school, much to the
delight of doctors and his whole family.
“Neil’s older brother decided to study medicine after seeing what he went through.
Neil hopes to follow in his big brother’s footsteps and also study medicine at University.
Together they hope to make a real difference to the lives of others,” June said.
“My family has changed in many ways since Neil’s illness. We are braver and more
optimistic towards life. We have learnt to treasure every day and to give back what we can.”
Vision for
Cancer impacts almost all of us in some way at some time in our lives. A cancer diagnosis
for a child is least expected and usually has the greatest impact on loved ones.
Each year at The Cancer Centre for Children, we see many children who are newlydiagnosed with cancer and are about to embark on the demanding treatment journey,
usually involving a combination of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
We support the whole family and directly involve them in their child’s treatment using a
multidisciplinary team-based model of care and follow up that continues long after the
treatment has finished.
This comprehensive approach to care is underpinned by a strong commitment to research.
The value of investing heavily in a robust clinical trials research program is fundamental
to our quest to improve outcomes for children with cancer. Clinical trials involve rigorous
scientific research to refine and improve treatment strategies for children with cancer.
We are leading the way in innovations in gene therapy clinical trials, brain tumour research
and understanding the biology of cancer. We have a strong commitment to the continued
expansion of our Paediatric Tumour Bank, the first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
We are uniquely placed in having both the cancer research and clinical care units of the
Hospital working closely together under the same roof. This allows us to directly ‘translate’
discoveries in the laboratory and through clinical trials directly to improved treatment at
the bedside.
Recent enhancements in research technologies have greatly assisted the process of
developing treatment approaches that are both disease and patient-specific, known as
personalised or precision medicine. We work in close partnership with other hospitals and
research institutions to achieve much of this important work.
This technology will ultimately enable us to understand why we fail to cure 20% of children
with cancer. Researchers will gain the experimental tools to pinpoint weaknesses in cancers,
identify new therapies and drugs and to minimise the long term impact of treatment.
This will revolutionise the way we treat and care for children with cancer in the future.
Our Cancer Centre for Children has the ‘Skill to Heal, the Spirit to Care and the Vision to Cure’.

Liver patient
Care in focus
Liver Transplants
A liver transplant is a major surgical procedure for a child with liver failure. Over half the
children needing a liver transplant have biliary atresia, an aggressive disease that destroys
the bile ducts that drain the liver. This disease has no cure and, if left untreated, results in
liver failure.
At any one time, six to eight children are on the liver transplant waiting list at The Children’s
Hospital at Westmead, their lives hanging in the balance as they await the precious gift
of life.
The Children’s Hospital at Westmead is the biggest paediatric liver transplant centre
in Australia and performs an average of 15 liver transplants each year. Children from
South Australia, Western Australia, Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory
travel to Westmead for this life-saving surgery which is not available closer to home.
As the liver is the only organ in the body that can regenerate, transplants can be successful
using only part of a liver.
Having a child on the waiting list for a liver transplant takes a toll on the whole family,
especially as most of the children are under three years old. Over the years, financial
donations from the community have helped to create vital support services for these
families in their time of greatest need, as their child awaits transplant and along their
road to recovery.

Pretty-as-a-picture Maddie loves having a princess tea party just as much as she loves
playing superheroes and villains with her big brother. She is so full of life, thanks to her
gift of life.
Maddie’s birth was bittersweet for her Mum, Ansi. She was overjoyed to be welcoming her
daughter into the world but anxious about what lay ahead. Her precious baby had been
diagnosed with heart and other problems during a pregnancy scan and doctors were already
planning surgery during her first months of life.
“As parents, it’s our job to protect and look after our children. But in this situation we felt
utterly useless,” Maddie’s parents Ansi and Jimmy said.
Maddie successfully underwent cardiac surgery but it became apparent that she had another
unusual congenital condition – the absence of her portal vein, which usually drains blood
into her liver. This was causing her liver to be compromised, so doctors made the brave
decision to place her on the liver transplant list.
This was a nervous time for Maddie’s family and health care team. A transplant for a child
with her condition was uncommon, with no guarantee that her oxygen levels would recover
even after a successful operation.
The donor liver was successfully transplanted into Maddie’s frail body and she began
to slowly become healthier and stronger.
There is a long road ahead for Maddie with more treatment planned, as well as
immunosuppressant medication, for the rest of her life. But for now, she is enjoying being
a normal, happy little girl.
“We take one day at a time. We appreciate life and each other so much more after
what we have been through. There is nothing more important in this world than family.
Nothing else matters.”
Vision for
Liver Transplants
This year is a double celebration for our Liver Transplant Team at The Children’s Hospital at
Westmead as we not only mark our 20th year since relocating from Camperdown, we also
performed our 300th liver transplant.
We have doubled our rate of transplants over 20 years and have significantly improved
patient survival. Improvements have occurred across the broad range of activities and
specialities involved in liver transplantation – organ donation and preservation, transplant
surgery and anaesthesia, post-operative care in the Intensive Care Unit, ward nursing,
nutritional rehabilitation and development of better anti-rejection drugs. This requires a
dedicated team of health care professionals all caring for the child and their family in a
holistic fashion.
The survival rate for children one year after transplant is now 95%, which represents
world-class outcomes, and we are working towards achieving 100%.
We have developed the use of ‘split’ liver grafts where one donor liver is used for two
recipients – the large part goes to an adult and the smaller part to a child, which is
technically more challenging for our surgeons.
In 2008 we reported a world first, where a child who had undergone a successful liver
transplant experienced spontaneous bone marrow transplantation due to donor cells within
the transplanted liver. Earlier this year we successfully performed a liver transplant on one
of Australia’s youngest and smallest transplant recipients – just six weeks old and weighing
only 2.7 kilograms.
By far one of the biggest challenges we face is organ donation rates. Although they have
increased by 50% over 20 years, we can still do better.
We are as excited about our future as we are proud of how far we have come. Gene therapy
and genomic sequencing is an area of exploration, particularly matching appropriate
immunosuppression to patient characteristics. We are exploring the suitability of
immunosuppression withdrawal to determine which patients can safely come off
anti-rejection drugs.
I’m excited about the future possibilities for transplants through the combination of
world class care and ground-breaking research.
