The RMH began in 1848 as Victoria’s first public hospital with only 10 beds to our name. And while we were small in size, we had the community of Melbourne behind us and we were ready to provide the best possible care for those in need.
Since those early years, we’ve moved forward with purpose. Always at the forefront, leading the way on improving the quality of life for all.
