The Melbourne Health Executive and Board support the yes vote for marriage equality.

We recognise with over 9,500 staff and volunteers, and our patients and their families, there will be some who vote yes, some will vote no and some will abstain. We value our diversity and respect all views of our community. 

Our role in the community is to be a health service that ensures everyone in our care is supported and well cared for every day. We strongly believe in equal respect for all, as the benefits of equity to the health of communities are well established, as are the adverse impacts of discrimination.

We extend our full support to anyone affected by the debate and strongly encourage seeking support if needed.

It’s our diversity that makes Melbourne Health a special place to work and a provider of great care.
