The Victorian Heart Hospital represents a tripartite agreement between Monash Health, Monash University and the Victorian government. It presents the opportunity to establish Australia's first stand-alone hospital dedicated to world class delivery of clinical services for cardiology and cardiac surgery. It integrates clinical care, research and teaching within the same facility, with considerable business development opportunities. The objective and process for developing the hospital will be reviewed.
- The VHH will permit integration of clinical care, research and teaching within the same building
- The VHH represents a novel tripartite agreement and partnership between Monash Health, Monash University and the Victorian government
- There are considerable economic rewards to be delivered by establishing these activities within a stand-alone institution
