Starlight opens at Monash Children’s Hospital
In October our community came together to officially open the Starlight Express Room at Monash Children’s Hospital.
The Starlight Express Room and Starlight Captains play a vital role in bringing fun, happiness and laughter to our patients and families every day.
Monash Health Chief Executive Andrew Stripp said Monash Children’s Hospital has been a proud partner with Starlight for many years.
“This is a space for children to forget that they’re in hospital; to be children, not patients,” he said.
“The Starlight Captains help distract patients from the reality they are facing in hospital, so our clinicians can focus on doing what they need to do medically.”
We are incredibly grateful to the Starlight Captains, staff, volunteers, supporters and ambassadors to have this amazing space in our hospital.”
