Monash Children’s Hospital is a network of Victorian paediatric healthcare services across Monash Medical Centre (Clayton), Dandenong Hospital and Casey Hospital. It’s one of Australia’s leading providers of integrated children’s health services, with more than 30 specialist services and programs and caring for more than 100,000 children every year. Monash Children’s Hospital is part of Monash Health, Victoria’s largest healthcare service and one of only four accredited Academic Health Science Centres in Australia.

The hospital includes Victoria’s largest Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and provides leading paediatric services in Rehabilitation, Oncology, Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, and Palliative Care.

It is also the Victorian Referral Centre for many low-volume and high-complex cases. Its services are linked to an adult service, allowing the hospital to provide transition-of-care as children grow older and move to an adult service.[1]
