Introducing Eye and Ear on the Park

July 29, 2016

From Monday 29 August 2016, The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital’s (the Eye and Ear) outpatient clinics and day surgery will be provided at a second site, Eye and Ear on the Park.

Located in the previous Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre on St Andrews Place in East Melbourne, Eye and Ear on the Park is located just 500 metres from the main hospital, with an underground car park available to patients of both sites.

Eye and Ear CEO Mark Petty said the new site will allow the hospital’s 5 year redevelopment project to continue with less impact on staff and patients.

“Our redevelopment project is well underway, with our new Emergency Department the first stage of the project to be completed," he said.

“Patient welfare has been at the centre of our planning, and by moving some of our services off-site, we can allow the internal redevelopment to continue and minimise the disruption to our patients, visitors, staff and volunteers," he said.

While outpatient clinics and day surgery will be moving from 29 August, all other services will remain at the main hospital on Gisborne Street, including the new 24-hour Emergency Department.

Mr Petty said all services will move back to the main hospital when the redevelopment is completed in late 2019.

“We are looking forward to providing the community with a state-of-the-art eye and ENT hospital and hope that by moving some of our services temporarily off-site, we can complete the redevelopment project sooner," he said.
