Peninsula Health is the major health care provider serving the metropolitan and regional areas on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. With over 900 beds we provide a wide range of services from obstetrics to aged care, rehabilitation, emergency and intensive care, oncology, psychiatric services and Hospital in the Home. In addition to providing quality, accessible health care services we are a teaching hospital and have a history of contributing to medical research.
Peninsula Health’s clinical cancer research is conducted at Frankston Hospital within the Medical Oncology Unit, an Oncology Day Service, Clinical Trials Unit, and Nursing and Palliative Care Unit.
In conjunction with Monash University, Peninsula Health are planning the development of an Academic Centre to be situated at our Frankston Campus.
The leading-edge academic development will be a shared facility to accommodate professional development for Peninsula Health clinical staff, teaching of Monash University health professional students as well as expanded joint research activities.
It will provide opportunity for interactions between researchers, clinicians and students, and set the scene for developing translational research designed to improve health care for the Peninsula community.
