Employee benefits

At Monash Health, we’re committed to our employees, just as they’re committed to our patients, their families and the community we serve. As part of this commitment, we offer a highly competitive employee benefits program. Read on to find out more.

Salary packaging

Monash Health employees are eligible for salary packaging. Salary packaging is an Australian Taxation Office approved means of restructuring your salary to reduce your taxation. This is provided through our partnership with MAXXIA. Salary packaging enables you to pay for certain items out of your pre-tax salary, including:

  • everyday living expenses including mortgage, rent or credit card payments
  • meal entertainment expenses
  • holiday accommodation and venue hire
  • the finance and running costs of your car through Novated Leasing
  • and other work related expenses.

Health and wellbeing

Our programs are designed to promote a healthier environment and lifestyle:

  • We have on site Gym/Fitness Centres (Healthwise Fitness) at Monash Medical Centre, Moorabbin Hospital, Dandenong Hospital and the Kingston Centre. From a pre-tax salary deduction, staff have access to classes, equipment and of course our accomplished instructors.
  • Monash Health Bicycle Users Group (BUG) is a group of passionate staff who have formed the bicycle users group with the purpose of increasing cycling participation within Monash Health and promote cycling as a commuting alternative.
  • Smoke Free Workplace – Smoking is prohibited in all Monash Health facilities including buildings, vehicles and outdoor areas used by employees, patients and the general public.
  • As an employee you can attend Lifestyle Management Seminars designed to assist and support you in a range of areas such as retirement, banking, superannuation and more. Lifestyle Management Seminars are conducted periodically across Monash Health sites.

Employee support

People Assist is a confidential coaching and support service provided by Converge International. This is available to our employees as well as their families (parent, spouse/partner or children). Qualified professionals with extensive management experience and qualifications provide this service free of charge.

Health insurance

Through partnerships with Medibank Private, Monash Health employees can now benefit from cost effective corporate private health insurance cover. This can be arranged through the ease of pay deduction.


Our nurse and midwife employees are entitled to a free uniform.

Financial services

Monash Health partners with BankVIc to provide a range of banking and financial services. Bank Vic has a branch located at Monash Medical Centre. Aside from the convenience, you can take advantage of competitive interest rates along with an award winning service.

Recognition and reward

Everyone appreciates being told they are doing a good job. Our Recognition and Reward program allows you to nominate a colleague for their work. Your nomination makes them eligible for quarterly and annual awards as well as letting them know their work has been recognised. When you join Monash Health, you will be part of a health service that values and recognises your contribution.

Café & gift shop facilities

Our larger sites include cafes and gift shops, providing a place for staff and visitors to sit and relax whilst enjoying a wide variety of hot food, fresh sandwiches, focaccias and salads, and of course – a coffee bar.  Our Gift Shops/Convenience stores (where available) provide a range of convenience items including magazines, newspapers, cards, gifts and hampers.

On-site car parking

Monash Health offers discounted car parking at our larger sites. Reserved parking areas are made available where possible for employees working afternoon/evening and night shifts.
