We turn scientific discoveries into clinical practice
From Australia’s first major heart valve replacements, to preventing unborn babies from developing cerebral palsy and the use of botox to help severe asthmatics breath, we are involved in hundreds of research projects and programs aimed at improving clinical care.
Science and research is the future and wherever possible our patients access the latest treatments at their bedside.
We celebrate our wonderfully diverse, multicultural community as the source of both our patients, families and staff.
We genuinely strive to provide care which meets the cultural needs and expectations of our patients.
Teaching the next generation
Through our university affiliations we are a major provider of education and training for the next generation of doctors, nurses and health professionals.
When you’re learning, there’s nothing like being able to tap into life experience and many of Victoria’s most senior and experienced clinicians have built their careers at Monash Health and actively share their expertise with students and junior staff.
Everyday our staff work hard to send patients home to their families and friends as quickly as possible.
Our new name
In May 2013 we changed our name from Southern Health to Monash Health.
Our commitment to the Victorian Child Safe Standards
