Our Mission / Objective

The Royal Women’s Hospital is Australia’s largest specialist hospital dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of women of and newborn babies.

The Women’s also has an extensive effort in research and in training community health professionals and health specialists. The Women’s program areas include gynaecology, women’s cancers, cancer survivorship, maternity, women’s and infant’s mental health, and newborn services.

The Women’s is recognised internationally for strong research and is a leader in the translation of research into clinical practice to improve patient care. The Women’s is also one of few hospitals in the world accredited by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a “health promoting hospital,” an achievement that reflects the importance we place on producing evidence-based, consumer-friendly health information for all women.

The Women’s is constantly seeking to develop and implement treatment innovations that offer superior clinical outcomes to the women of Victoria. For example, we have the only gender-based mental health research centre in Australia, the only MRgFUS system (latest technology used to treat a common but debilitating uterine fibroids) at a public hospital in the southern hemisphere, and the only major research group integrating laboratory, clinical and social research in menopause, particularly early-onset menopause caused by cancer therapy. All of these projects were made possible only through the generosity of our donors.

Our Services

The Women’s offers services across all stages of life. We conduct research and provide care in the areas of

  • gynaecology
  • obstetrics
  • neonatal paediatrics
  • in vitro fertilization (IVF)
  • urogynaecology
  • oncology (breast, cervical and ovarian cancers)
  • mental health.

Our Beneficiaries

The Women’s is a tertiary hospital, meaning we provide critical care to the women of Victoria, typically in obstetric (maternity/birth), gynaecology and oncology services. We also have one of Australia’s leading neonatal and intensive care units for premature and ill babies.

The Women’s is also serving the women of Victoria through its advocacy work for women’s health and social issues, and through its role as a WHO-accredited “Health (Information) Providing Hospital.”
