McCulloch House is a purpose built 16-bed, level 3 inpatient palliative care/hospice unit.

Located at Monash Medical Centre, Clayton, McCulloch House patients have access to the services of this tertiary referral hospital including diagnostic imaging, pathology and all medical and allied health services.

Our aim is to assess the needs of patients and their caregivers in relation to symptom control, respite and supportive care.

Patients and caregivers are encouraged to participate in decisions regarding care, and caregivers who wish may participate in physical care. Information and resources will be freely available on an individual basis to help with this. All information remains confidential.

Team meetings and ward rounds are held twice weekly, where the patient’s current care and treatment is evaluated. Ongoing reassessment may include implementation of community supports or referral to an appropriate caring facility.

Teaching, education and research play an important role in advancing knowledge and care at McCulloch House, which is associated with Monash University. There is no obligation for your relative or friend to participate.
