Critically Sick & Injured
When Queenslanders are seriously injured, Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital (RBWH) is the place many will come for critical care. Whether injured through car accidents, assaults, burns, or critically ill with disease or infection, patients can depend on care from a team of medical experts that are leaders in their fields.
With more than 600 dedicated health care professionals, RBWH Cancer Care Services provides treatment in medical oncology, haematology and bone marrow transplant, haemophilia and radiation oncology. We provide world standard care to patients from all over Queensland, Northern New South Wales, the Northern Territory and Pacific Rim.
As the leading philanthropic funding partner of RBWH, the Foundation invests 100% of all donations into cutting edge medical and clinician-led research, as well as staff training and education initiatives, the latest equipment and technologies, and evidence-based patient care programs.
In the year 2021, talk of infectious diseases invariably brings to mind COVID-19, but their threat to humans has existed far longer. By definition, an infectious disease - such as flu, malaria, meningitis or tetanus - is a disease caused by a germ and the most common germs are bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites.
It is estimated that twenty percent of Queenslanders – one in five - will experience a mental illness or substance use disorder in any given year. Almost half of us will be affected at some point of our life, and all of us will likely know someone living with the impact.
Stroke, MND, Epilepsy
Growing mini-brains to test epilepsy drugs; working with paramedics to identify stroke victims quickly, allowing access to time-sensitive treatments; and evaluating a ‘pinch test’ for motor neurone disease are just some of the incredible research projects being undertaken by Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) Neurologists.
Our Tiniest Patients
RBWH is considered a national leader in the care of premature and sick babies and their mothers, with around 1600 tiny fighters admitted to the Grantley Stable Neonatal Unit (GSNU) for specialist care and management every year.
Saving Lives Everywhere
Internationally, RBWH is recognised as a research leader in the fields of cancer care; burns, trauma and critical care; neonatology and infectious diseases. Any complex case will be transferred to the hospital and like Beaudine, have access to a multidisciplinary approach to disease and illness.
