Victorian Heart Hospital

In partnership with Monash Health and Monash University, the Victorian Government engaged Tier 1 provider John Holland deliver innovative façade access, maintenance access, metalworks and secondary steelwork packages on this world class facility.

The APS team were excited to be involved in the construction of the Southern Hemisphere’s only hospital dedicated to heart health, which will forge a new era in heart research and clinical expertise, enabling patients to access world-class cardiac care and ground-breaking research under one roof.

Patients with heart disease will be able to access life-saving diagnosis and treatment as well as ground-breaking research, in one centre of excellence. Within the facility, Australia’s leading cardiac specialists will also train and develop the next crop of undergraduate and postgraduate medical, nursing and science students.
