Changes to services at Sandringham
After almost a decade-long collaboration with Alfred Health, the Women’s has transferred the management of maternity, newborn and gynaecology services at Sandringham Hospital to Monash Health.
With this change, women and babies in Melbourne’s south-east continue to have access to a world-class health service, now through Monash Health Women’s.
Low-risk care will continue at Sandringham, while women and babies who need to be transferred for complex care will be closer to a tertiary hospital in Clayton.
The Women’s Chief Operating Officer, Lisa Lynch said women and families are being cared for by the same compassionate team at the same location.
“The team at Sandringham Hospital are highly skilled and committed professionals who have always focused on what’s best for women and their babies,” Ms Lynch said.
“We’ve worked very closely with Monash Health to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible and has little, if any, impact on patients.”
The Women’s wishes the team at Sandringham a fond farewell and would like to thank colleagues at Monash Health and Alfred Health for their collaborative support throughout the transition.
