Patients & visitors
Welcome to the Women’s
We offer a world-class health service for women and for newborns.
For women, we offer an extensive range of services to support them with some of their biggest health concerns; complex pregnancy, infertility, endometriosis, chronic pelvic pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, menopause, sexual health and women's cancers.
For babies, our Newborn Intensive Care Unit, is a place where babies from across Victoria come to, when they are born unwell and premature and require around-the-clock care for their survival and their development.
We are committed to providing the highest standard of service and care and we have built research into every stream of the hospital to make sure that our patients are the first in line to receive the most advanced treatment available.
We are here to help you. Welcome.
