BOC expresses profound sorrow for families affected by devastating tragedy
BOC is extremely saddened of the tragic death of a newborn and the injury of another at Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital over the past weeks.
We deeply regret that these families are suffering pain and sorrow.
As soon as BOC was notified of the situation we cooperated fully with all investigations being undertaken by the NSW Government - the Hospital, the NSW Coroner, and the Ministry of Health teams.
It is extremely important to identify the exact cause of this tragedy.
BOC is also conducting a full internal enquiry and has appointed a special investigation team to ensure that the cause is clearly identified.
BOC will work closely with the Ministry of Health throughout these investigations.
