Peninsula Health is the major metropolitan health service for Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula. We care for a population of 300,000 people, which swells to over 400,000 people during the peak tourism seasons between December and March. We care for our community across the life continuum from obstetrics, paediatrics, emergency medicine, intensive care, critical care, surgical and general medicine, rehabilitation, and oncology, through to aged care and palliative care. We also provide extensive services in community health, health education and promotion, ambulatory care, and mental health. Peninsula Health has over 6000 staff and 750 volunteers. We have undergone significant growth and transformation in recent years and are recognised as a leading metropolitan health service and major teaching and research hospital. Our vision is to provide exceptional health and community care and our purpose is to work together to build a healthy community.
