Cardiac CT is a relatively new imaging technique & 2017 marked the 9th year of our dedicated cardiac service.

With a growing evidence base, demand for services continues to increase.

Just when we thought our service was fully maximised, we performed another 562 cases last year, to perform a total of 3,838 cardiac CT scans.

Well done to all those involved in providing this service, a 17% increase is a reflection of your commitment to improve patient access & ensure timely treatment.

Cardiac nurse Glenn dressed up as his altered ego - Captain Recycle, spearheading a renewed focus on recycling at Monash Medical Centre.

Hospitals unfortunately contribute thousands of kilograms of clinical waste each year to landfill.

Setting up simple systems & processes for recycling medical waste is critical to reducing both the volume of waste & associated disposal costs. .

It's Transformation Tuesday, a day each week we will bring you news and updates on the transformation of cardiac services in and through the Victorian Heart Hospital (VHH).

Today we share with you some images of Monash University Clayton, where the VHH will be co-located - amazing buildings, restful outdoor areas, stunning facilities.

We are incredibly privileged to be establishing the VHH at Monash University - a true university hospital fusing education and research with clinical cardiac care.

Australia has one of the highest pet ownership rates in the world with 39% of households having a dog as a pet.

Many of our cardiac patients miss their dog while in hospital - the unreserved loyalty & affection.

Today Operations Manager Kirsten (left) & 32 South Nurse Manager Pauline (middle) met with Delta Therapy Dogs Coordinator Chris (right) to progress an expanded Monash Health agreement for twice weekly pet therapy dogs for the cardiothoracic unit - bringing the joy of animal companionship to patients after open-heart surgery.

A heartwarming program not only for patients but also for our staff! .

Too rainy today for Melbournians to have a heart healthy morning bike ride.

Despite it being a sub-freezing morning in Shanghai (-4 degrees) Troy still braved the cold for a brisk ride in his MonashHeart kit! .

Wonderful to be working with architects Conrad Gargett & John Wardle Architects on the Victorian Heart Hospital project - a project of national significance.
