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

Queensland Health Minister Steven Miles has called a press conference at the hospital on Friday morning where it’s expected he’ll announce it will be called the Queensland Children’s Hospital.

The hospital was named after Phyllis Dorothy Cilento, a pioneering doctor. But medical practitioners raised concerns and a survey showed most parents didn’t know it was a public facility.
