Monash Medical Centre (Clayton) is one of the State's major teaching and referral hospitals, and is the largest within the Southern Health providing specialist care to the State's south-east.
The Monash Medical Centre was formed in 1987 as the result of the amalgamation of three pre-existing hospitals, the Queen Victoria Medical Centre (VA 1254) , Prince Henry's Hospital (VA 441) and Moorabbin Hospital (VA 1250).
In 1995 it joined with Dandenong Hospital, Kingstone Centre, Sandringham and District Memorial Hospital, and Hampton Rehabilitation Hospital to form the Southern Health Care Network. In July 2000, the organisation changed to become Southern Health - Victoria's largest Metropolitan Health Service.
Clayton Campus focuses on medical services requiring complex and multi- disciplinary activity and significant technological support. The Moorabbin Campus has developed as a less intensive hospital offering a range of services including elective and short-stay care, with a strong emphasis on Women's Health.
