A special day for today, as it marks the 140th anniversary of the day the first children's hospital opened it's doors in Brisbane.
Through the philanthropic efforts of Mary McConnel, the Hospital for Sick Children was established in 1878, later to become the Royal Children’s Hospital, and ultimately the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital.
Mary was a strong leader and advocate for child health and welfare issues and we are proud to carry on her tradition.
The Children's Hospital Foundation still relies on philanthropy and the generosity of businesses and the community to fund life-saving medical research, vital new equipment and entertainment, support and care for children and their families.
Like Mary McConnel, you too can make a vital difference to the lives of sick children in our state. Donate here https://hubs.ly/H0bg3dH0

This International Women’s Day, we’re proud to launch the Mary McConnel Career Boost Program for Women in Paediatric Research, which aims to help female researchers advance their careers and play a leading role in finding more cures and better treatments for sick kids everywhere.
The program is named after Mary McConnel who established the first children’s hospital in Queensland, namely the Hospital for Sick Children in Brisbane in 1878 (which became the Royal Children’s Hospital, and ultimately the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital).
Caitlin McConnel (a sixth generation McConnel), pictured with our Chief Executive Rosie Simpson, helped us officially launch the program at our International Women’s Day Breakfast this morning.
