Brisbane's Lady Cilento Hospital Could Be Renamed ABC

Brisbane's Lady Cilento Hospital could be renamed to clear up confusion about whether it's a public or a private facility.

Queenslanders will have a month to have their say on a proposal to change its name to the Queensland Children's Hospital, after medical practitioners raised concerns and a survey showed most parents didn't know it was a public facility.

The hospital was named after Phyllis Dorothy Cilento, a pioneering doctor and journalist, but Health Minister Steven Miles says he's been convinced there might be a case to change it.

Deputy Opposition Leader Tim Mander slammed the move to rename the hospital.

“Unlike Labor, who want to rename everything after former Labor pollies, the hospital was named after Phyllis Dorothy Cilento, who was a fierce advocate for the health of mothers and children,” he said in a statement.
