The new Children's Hospital will provide state-of-the-art medical care to children in a safe, happy, child-friendly environment.  The new hospital will be a worthy successor to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children at Yorkhill and will be linked to Maternity Services and the Adult Hospital in order to provide the best possible care for new babies and their mothers too.
