Southern Health Establishes Solid Reputation in Healthcare Industry With Leadership Development Programs and Academic Research

As Victoria's largest public healthcare provider, Southern Care operates 46 locations statewide and provides care to upwards of 1,200,000 urban and rural Australians each year. The organisation is much more than just a network of hospitals, however: Southern Health offers a vast range of services including newborn and primary care; paediatrics; prevention and early intervention services; chronic disease management; mental health counseling and outreach services, and aged care. Their affiliations with many of Victoria's top universities provide them with opportunities for both researching and teaching the latest methods of high-standard care to the next generation of health professionals and clinicians.
