Monash among top heart hospitals globally

Monash Health Heart has been ranked in the top cardiology hospitals globally.

Published in the World’s Best Specialised Hospitals 2022 rankings, Monash Health Heart is one of only two Australian cardiology hospitals featured.

Monash Health Heart director Stephen Nicholls said the ranking reflected the many people who had contributed over the years, not only in the delivery of clinical care but in the important work undertaken in research and teaching.

When asked what this ranking means to the Monash Health Heart team, Professor Nicholls said they were in a unique position to deliver specialised care and fostered a supportive culture that had driven outstanding outcomes.

‘I’m particularly proud that Monash Health Heart is one of the only few teams in the world that provides cardiac care for patients across the lifespan – starting in pregnancy and extending all the way to both end of life and older Australians.

‘The way the team has continued to look after their patients and each other during the COVID-19 pandemic reflects the strong culture we have established.

‘We have an incredible opportunity to take this to another level as we build the Victorian Heart Hospital.

‘This will help consolidate Monash Health as one of the leading health services in the world with regard to heart disease and we can’t wait to get started!’
