Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital
Proudly serving Victorians since 1863, the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital is a state-wide teaching, training and research health service specialising in eye, ear, nose and throat medicine.
Based at East Melbourne, the Hospital, primarily an ambulatory and elective surgery centre, is one of Victoria's largest hospitals in terms of patient appointments. It undertakes half of the State's public general eye surgery, up to 90% of special eye surgery, and almost all of Victoria's public cochlear implant surgery.
Annually, the Hospital provides over 220,000 occasions of service to patients ranging from medical and allied health outpatient clinics, to emergency and inpatient admissions.
Since its beginnings in 1863, when the Hospital was an infirmary treating diseases of the eye and ear amongst Melbourne's poor, the Hospital has grown in size and reputation. As a world leader in eye, ear, nose and throat services, the Hospital is now at the cutting edge of research and teaching. This is supported through its close association with the University of Melbourne Departments of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology which are co-located with the Hospital.
The Hospital also operates three satellite services: at Maroondah Hospital in Ringwood; at Broadmeadows Health Service - a division of Northern Health; and a paediatric hearing clinic at Taralye. The Hospital has strong affiliations with regional health services and its medical registrars undertake a rotation across Victoria.
