Main structural works now complete for Australia’s first heart hospital
Work on the $564 million Victorian Heart Hospital hasn’t skipped a beat with the main structural works now complete and works on the façade and internal fit-out underway.
This brings Australia’s first standalone specialist cardiac hospital one step closer to completion. Construction is on track for completion in late 2022.
Located on the Monash University Clayton campus, the Victorian Heart Hospital will integrate clinical cardiology services, research, and education to create a centre of excellence.
Patients with heart disease will have access to world-class cardiac care and research – all under one roof.
Once complete, the hospital will deliver up to 2,150 cardiac surgery operations, 13,500 cardiac laboratory procedures, and 108,000 consultations every year.
The project is being delivered in partnership with Monash Health and Monash University.
