Monash Children's Hospital

June 18, 2017

Here I am, absolutely knocked off my feet by my first visit to the Monash Children's Hospital which opened recently in Clayton.

This place is incredible. It is a calm, beautiful environment, welcoming for children. Most importantly, it is a new home to an incredible team of doctors, nurses and support staff who will provide world-class medical care for the precious kids of the South East.

Well done to Daniel Andrews and his team.

I am so very grateful for what this new facility means for the health of every child and young person I represent in Hotham.

I also checked out the new Ronald McDonald House Monash Family Room. This room is available for parents and families who are visiting a sick child. Sometimes the cup of tea and biscuit they have there is the only time they spent away from their child's bed for the whole day. You can do your laundry, have a shower, let your other kids play with the toys and games and even have a snooze.

It's a brilliant institution and I know will provide peace and support for many thousands of parents in the years to come.
