TMS to assist Children’s Health QLD with transition support and team development at the newly built Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital

Lady_Cilento_Childrens_Hospital_250px-tnTMS Consulting is pleased to announce that it has been engaged to assist Children’s Health Queensland in the coming together of the Mater and Royal Children’s Hospitals and their relocation to the newly built Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane.

TMS has been engaged to provide organisational development, as well as change and transition management expertise to ensure the new teams come together effectively and efficiently, and with a strong team culture that focusses on providing the highest level of care for the children of Queensland.

TMS Chief Executive Officer, Helen Wood, who will provide Executive Oversight on the project expressed her delight at being involved in the project.

“TMS is both thrilled and proud to be working with Children’s Health Queensland as it prepares for the opening of the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital,” said Ms Wood. “It is an incredibly important project that will consolidate the expertise of the two teams and will position CHQ at the forefront of children’s health in Australia.”

“This is a unique project in that we will be working with a brand new organisation to shape its vision and culture, working with staff to define what it means to deliver the very best care for children and their families.”

Ms Wood goes on to explain that TMS’s role goes further than the relocation of the two existing teams at the Royal Children’s Hospital and Mater Children’s Hospital.

“This project is broader than just the move to the new hospital. We will be working with teams and leaders across the whole Hospital Health Service, including clinical, non-clinical and community-based staff, to provide support through the transition and connect them to the values and how they contribute to a truly great organisation.”

The Lady Cilento hospital which will open in late 2014 will be the biggest public children’s hospital in Australia, and will provide highly specialised paediatric care for children from birth to 16 years of age.

The new hospital will be the only specialist children’s hospital for the state, owned and operated by Children’s Health Queensland.
