Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital
In June 2007, 'The New Alex' in Brighton opened its doors to children across Sussex and beyond.
The state-of-the-art facility won an international design award and continues to offer pioneering paediatric care. It provides inpatient facilities, including intensive care, and outpatient care for children to the whole of the South East, including the Isle of Wight.
In 2012, a total of 45,580 children and babies were treated in the Alex and the Trevor Mann Baby Unit (TMBU).
Recently, Rockinghorse has working with the Alex to develop a new Gastro-Intestinal (GI) Nutrition Unit as well as a children's accident and emergency room and a pain distraction unit to help treat young people.

Children's accident and emergency unit
At the end of January, Rockinghorse was lucky enough to meet local comedian Steve Coogan, who kindly joined us for the official opening of the children’s A&E department at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital (The Alex).
Rockinghorse is proud to announce that the new Gastro-intestinal (GI) unit at The Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital has now been launched.
Pain distraction system
We have recently provided two innovative 3D interactive pain distraction systems, which will put the hospital at the forefront of emergency care for young people in the UK.
In April 2012, Brighton hip hop duo, Rizzle Kicks, officially opened our teenage rooms at the hospital.
