About Archives RCH

  • The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) Archives serves as the hospital’s corporate memory by collecting and preserving the hospital’s cultural heritage and unique identity. 

    The role of the Archives is to support the various business, educational, research and patient care activities of the hospital, including its administrative record-keeping requirements; educating staff and students on the traditions of the hospital; providing a sense of identity to the hospital community; support for public affairs, fundraising and community engagement campaigns; and providing research services. The collection provides wonderful insight into the diverse activities of the hospital through the years and includes both historical and contemporary materials. 

    For further information on our collections, donations and accessing the archive please refer our new Archives and Collections website, which was generously funded by the RCH Foundation.

    The archive does not hold patient records, to access medical records please visit the  Freedom of Information department page or telephone: +61 3 9345 5156 or +61 3 9345 5132.
