With approximately 330,000 young residents aged 0-19 years living in our catchment area - a quarter of the state's child population - our Children's Program operates from three of our major sites serving newborn, child and adolescent needs:
- the internationally-renowned Monash Medical Centre, Clayton which operates the only tertiary paediatric service and paediatric intensive care unit in Victoria outside of the Royal Children's Hospital (RCH).
