Community Health / Monash Health Community

Monash Health Community supports our community in order to help people live their best lives by improving and maintaining health, independence and well-being.

The Community Program connects acute hospital care and community-based care. Through our services we support people’s wellbeing and opportunities for them to live their best lives.

We help people stay healthy and well by being part of the communities where people live, work and play. We match medical and other needs with targeted, multidisciplinary care so we can deliver a connected system of care around their needs and where they live. This is supported by services that enable people to care for themselves and make healthy choices.

Our services are offered face-to-face and in group settings and include clinical (eg: nursing, dental, medicine, physiotherapy, occupational and other therapies) and non-clinical (eg: counselling, community development, social work, case management) services. Some services are also available through telehealth.

Community Assessment Response Team (CART)

CART partners with acute and primary care services to enable smooth transitions across settings, is person-centred and follows a patient as their needs evolve in their continuum of care. We use a tiered approach to patient care which allows resources to be directed to those who need them most, whilst actively supporting people to avoid acute services.


Monash@Home encompasses our Hospital in the Home and Residential in Reach services. These services help prevent avoidable hospital presentations and/or enable patients to receive acute treatment and expert hospital care to patients where they normally live.

South East Centre Against Sexual Assault and Family Violence (SECASA)

We are the largest family violence and sexual assault service provider across south-eastern metropolitan Melbourne. We provide time-limited, trauma-informed and evidence-based counselling to help with the recovery from trauma arising from sexual assault and/or family violence. We also provide a 24/7 sexual assault response service, assessments and interventions for children, community education and prevention, secondary consultation and professional training.

Priority Populations

The Priority Populations Team identifies and addresses health inequity experienced by vulnerable groups living within the catchments of Greater Dandenong, Casey and Cardinia.  We aim to ensure that all people in our community have the same opportunities to experience optimal health and wellbeing.
