Monash Health is committed to improving the health outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This can only be achieved by working in partnership with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, providing opportunities and promoting and building mutual respect. This is embedded in Monash Health’s Strategic Plan, Reconciliation Action Plan and Aboriginal Employment Plan.
Monash Health is committed to closing the health gap and this is demonstrated through our governance structures, including policies and procedures, as well as the care our employees deliver in acute, subacute and community services.
Monash Health has developed and implemented a Reconciliation Action Plan in partnership with the Aboriginal community, has signed the Statement of Intent to close the health gap and has an Aboriginal Employment Plan in place.
As Monash Health responds to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have reduced visiting hours and visitor limits to keep everyone safe.
Visit the Coronavirus (COVID-19) page information about coronavirus (COVID-19), including changes to Monash Health services, visitor restrictions, screening clinics and resources.
Monash Health’s Aboriginal Health Service is here to help during this time. Our services include hospital support, welfare checks and cultural support. Please contact the Service via email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0418 503 643.
Monash Health commits to the journey of working together with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, to promote reconciliation and to provide culturally appropriate health services and improve health outcomes, through improving relationships, opportunities and respect.
