Victorian Heart Hospital main entrance now complete
Major construction of Australia’s first dedicated cardiac hospital – the Victorian Heart Hospital – is on track, with the three-level basement and main entrance on Blackburn Road in Clayton now complete.
The new hospital will be operated by Monash Health and located on the Monash University Clayton campus. It will integrate clinical cardiology services, research and education to create a centre of excellence, raising the profile of cardiovascular research, treatment and training.
Due to be completed in 2022, the hospital will have capacity to provide up to 2,150 cardiac surgeries every year.
