The opening of the Southern Hemisphere’s only hospital dedicated to heart health, based at Monash University (Australia) in the heart of the Monash Technology Precinct, will forge a new era in heart research and clinical expertise, enabling patients to access world-class cardiac care and ground-breaking research under one roof.

The hospital, operated by Monash Health, is due to welcome its first patients in February 2023. The Victorian Heart Hospital (VHH) will integrate clinical cardiology services, research and education to create a centre of excellence, enhancing the practice of cardiology, treatment and training.

The hospital will also be the home of the Monash Victorian Heart Institute (VHI) enabling the co-location of research, education and patient care.

Monash University President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Margaret Gardner AC said the location of the hospital within the Monash Technology Precinct provided an exciting opportunity for an end-to-end pipeline of capability from research discovery to clinic. “Monash brings together world-leading experts to explore new ways to solve cardiovascular challenges by collaborating with a diverse research and innovation community of excellence, beyond the boundaries of health and medicine, which will deliver improved health outcomes for the community and save lives,” Professor Margaret said.
