The Victorian Heart Hospital

The Victorian Heart hospital is a joint initiative between Monash Health and Monash University. The hospital will be located at Monash University and will open in February 2023.

Following the model of dedicated cancer hospitals Australia-wide, the heart hospital will be dedicated to the care of one highly specialised area – cardiac care. Worldwide, there are many specialised heart hospitals in major cities, but none in Australia. The case for a dedicated heart hospital as a basis for providing cardiac care is strong and will significantly enhance Victoria’s position in cardiac care, research, and education.

This hospital will be a state-of-the-art hospital with innovative models of care and research facilities and will be Australia’s first Cardiac Hospital. It will consist of 190 beds and will include a full range of ambulatory and inpatient cardiac care, including cardiac theatres, cardiac catheterisation laboratories and emergency department, ambulatory services, such as cardiac CT, echocardiography and specialist consultation. A strong focus on prevention, recovery and rehabilitation will also be at the heart of the Victorian Heart Hospital. 

The Victorian Heart Hospital will be a centre for education; through a Monash Health and Monash University partnership, the hospital will provide training options for undergraduate and postgraduate medical, nursing and science students, subspecialty training fellowships for cardiologists and cardiac surgeons, and provision of PhD and Masters placements for health professionals.
