McCulloch House is Monash Health’s dedicated, 16-bed inpatient supportive and palliative care unit, situated on the grounds of Monash Medical Centre in Clayton. McCulloch House was named after Margaret McCulloch, wife of four-time Victorian Premier Sir James McCulloch and opened in 1889 as a convalescent home for women. Supported by a major fundraising campaign, McCulloch House was reborn in 1996 as an inpatient palliative care unit; unique in Victoria because it is also an integral part of a specialist hospital. The palliative care services at McCulloch House are provided by a specialist multi-disciplinary team who assess and care for patients with life-limiting illness, providing symptom management, respite and end-of-life care, as well as support for families. We actively encourage our patients and their caregivers to participate in decisions regarding care, so that our patients’ needs are being met and they have the best quality of life.
