Monash University has announced that the Victorian Heart Hospital (VHH) at its Clayton campus in Australia is scheduled to open in February 2023.      

Operated by Monash Health, the new facility is situated in the heart of the Monash Technology Precinct.

VHH, said to be the first specialist heart hospital in Australia, will provide patients access to both quality cardiac care and research. 

The facility will serve as a centre of excellence for cardiology treatment and training by bringing clinical cardiology services, research as well as education together.

In this regard, the facility will feature Monash Victorian Heart Institute (VHI) to encourage research and education.

Monash University president and vice-chancellor professor Margaret Gardner AC said: “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.

Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences Faculty dean professor Christina Mitchell said: “Monash University’s cardiovascular undergraduate and postgraduate training courses in medicine, nursing and allied health, will be located in the VHI to enable the training of the next generation of cardiac health care professionals.

“The VHI’s cardiac research programme will be embedded in the clinical practice of the Victorian Heart Hospital to create evidence-based solutions for cardiac conditions that will enhance patient outcomes and experience.”
