Victoria’s New Children’s Hospital

Premier Daniel Andrews and Minister for Health Jill Hennessy officially opened the $250 million new Monash Children’s Hospital on 28 March 2017.

Patients will progressively move into the new building in mid-April 2017. The building provides a coherent public identity for the comprehensive paediatric services provided across several campuses. The new centre is connected to the existing Monash Medical Centre Clayton (MMCC), integrating tertiary, primary and secondary care for children and increases the capacity of paediatric services at MMCC, providing for the projected growth and future expansion requirements.

The facility model includes 96 Paediatric Beds, 12 children’s cancer day beds, 20 same day beds, 10 paediatric intensive care beds, 30 neonatal intensive care cots, 28 beds providing special mental health services for children and adolescents, expanded operating facilities for the hospital including 4 Operating Theatres, Medical Imaging expansion, General Paediatric Outpatients comprising 27 Consulting Rooms, 23 Treatment rooms, Program Administration, Academic Unit and Satellite Pharmacy.

“This remarkable new hospital is going to change the lives of so many children here in Victoria. From its design to its services, it is going to ensure children get the best care possible.” Premier Daniel Andrews
