Posted 9 June 2022

We are thrilled to welcome our Clown Doctors, Starlight Captains and volunteers back on-site at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital after COVID-19 restrictions recently eased at the Women's and Children's Health Network.

They have all been greatly missed by our staff, patients and families.

The Starlight Captains will be visiting wards on their usual ‘Rocket Rounds’ and you never know where those cheeky Clown Doctors might pop up! And in other good news, the Starlight Express Room is due to re-open soon.

You will find our volunteers in both the Hospital and at community sites across South Australia in roles such as administration assistance, child minding, guide team, delivering home equipment, family support and assisting Play Therapists.

Our volunteer guides are back at the Kermode Street entrance Information Desk (open 8am-4pm on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, and 8am-midday on Wednesday and Friday).

If you are visiting the hospital, make sure you say hello to our friendly volunteers in either Rainbows Café (opening 14 June) and Vic's Coffee Shop (opening 27 June).
