Inpatient Campuses

Our palliative care services at Caritas Christi Hospice Kew are currently undergoing redevelopment into a state-of-the-art Palliative Care Hospice with a 120 bed residential facility on the same site. During this time, palliative care services are currently located at St Vincent’s Hospital on the Park, St Vincent’s newest facility, in East Melbourne.

Admissions to either site are facilitated by our admissions coordinators.  Health professionals, family, friends and patients are welcome to phone the admission coordinators on (03) 9075 2600 to make an enquiry about an admission or arrange a tour of the facilities and meet with the staff.  The referral tool for health professionals is the SCTT which is availble here
