Monash Health has a proud history of providing health care to the people of Victoria reaching back to the mid-1800s.
Monash Health is Victoria’s largest public health service. We provide safe, high-quality care to one-quarter of Melbourne’s population, across the entire lifespan, from pre-birth to end-of-life.
We provide award-winning healthcare across the entire lifespan – from pre-birth, newborn babies and children, to the aged, their families and carers.
Our specialties include paediatrics (caring for children), cardiology (caring for the heart), women’s health, kidney and pancreas transplants and intensive care for sick and preterm babies in the first few weeks and months of life.
Currently, we have over 18,000 employees who work at over 40 care locations across south eastern Melbourne, including Monash Medical Centre, Monash Children’s Hospital, Moorabbin Hospital, Dandenong Hospital, Casey Hospital, Kingston Centre, Cranbourne Centre, and an extensive network of rehabilitation, aged care, community health and mental health facilities.
Our Academic Health Science Centre partnership, Monash Partners and translational research hub, Monash Health Translation Precinct are world renowned for turning scientific discoveries into clinical practice to benefit patients locally and internationally.
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.
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 employees.
