Who We Are

3centres Collaboration refers to the collective decisions undertaken by a joint steering group of obstetric and midwifery directors from Victoria's three level six maternity hospitals or 'centres' – Mercy Hospital for Women, Monash Medical Centre (Southern Health), The Royal Women's Hospital. The steering group also includes the Director of the Perinatal Emergency Referral Service (PERS) and the Coordinator of the Maternity and Newborn Clinical Network (MNCN). A senior representative from the Victorian Department of Health (DH) participates in the group as a non-voting member.
