Decorations Delight All at Kids Ward

St Vincent's Private Hospital, East Melbourne

Our East Melbourne Kids Team are a crafty and creative bunch!

Decorating the ward in a popular new kids theme every few months, the Team lovingly and skillfully cuts, sticks, paints, hangs and dresses up the ward as a way of distracting and delighting some of our youngest patients - and their parents! -  during their visit away from home.

With past themes including Under the Sea, Enchanted Forest, Winter Wonderland, Space, Jungle Fever - and the obligatory seasonal Christmas, Easter and Halloween - the cause is a labour of love for the Team, all of whom donate their own time, effort, materials and skill to creating the amazing displays.

One of the largest private Paediatric Units in Victoria, St Vincent's Kids has been specialising in Orthopaedics, Urology, ENT, Plastics and General Surgery for children and adolescents for decades.
