“It’s incredible, it’s bringing joy to kids,” says Bridgette’s mother Jess.

 

The late Lindsay G Quinn’s passion to make a difference will live on in the laughter of children.

A new high-tech and interactive paediatric ward for children and teenagers was made possible thanks to the foresight of Mr Quinn, who included Cabrini in his Will.

The technologically advanced ward features interactive fun and games that are controlled via infra-red sensors and a Kinect sensor located in the play room.

Each patient room and the day-care area is also equipped with games, Foxtel, Internet TV streaming and Internet radio streaming.

This means that for young patients like Bridgette Jefferson, 4, who travels all the way from Tasmania for investigative gastroenterology, a hospital stay can be a fun experience and take their minds off their illness.

“It’s incredible, it’s bringing joy to kids,” says Bridgette’s mother Jess. “They have fun and are more relaxed. It’s absolutely beautiful here.

“All the facilities are fabulous. It’s seamless, accommodating and fun. It’s safe and they end up having good memories.”
