International recognition for Monash

Monash Health has ranked in the top 50 of American magazine Newsweek’s world’s best specialised hospitals 2021 list.

Ranking at number 45, the Monash Heart cardiology program is one of only two services in Australia to appear in the top 50 of the Newsweek list, which ranks hospitals specialising in cardiology, oncology and endocrinology.

The list is published in partnership with Statista Inc., a global market research and consumer data firm.

Monash Heart director Stephen Nicholls described the ranking as an incredible achievement.

‘This announcement is a wonderful reflection of all the great contributions made by our talented team,’ said Professor Nicholls.

‘We’re excited to use this momentum as a springboard as we build the Victorian Heart Hospital.’

The Victorian Heart Hospital will be Australia’s first dedicated heart hospital and is due to be completed in 2022, as a $564 million project delivered in partnership with the Victorian Government and Monash University.

When fully developed and at maximum capacity, the Victorian Heart Hospital is expected to deliver 100,000 cardiac consultations every year.
