The new Monash Children’s Hospital built in Clayton, Victoria, supports the needs of the young families who are moving to the rapid growth areas of south eastern and outer metropolitan Melbourne.

Opened in 2017, this 230-bed hospital, which is co-located next to Monash Medical Centre, is one of only two tertiary paediatric facilities for Victorian children and their families, and will include a purpose-built facility where clinical services will be delivered in a child and family-friendly environment. At the time of opening, it will also be the only location in Victoria that provides foetal surgery, thalassemia and paediatric cardiac electro-physiology.

The new hospital offers 96 in-patient acute beds, 10 pediatric intensive care beds, 64 newborn cots, 20 early-in-life mental health service beds, eight neuro developmental psychiatry beds, 20 same-day beds, 12 oncology same-day beds, three operating theatres plus a dedicated endoscopy suite, and many more specialist services.
