About our emergency department
Cabrini’s Alan, Ada and Eva Selwyn Emergency Department (ED) is a Monash University teaching facility staffed by specialist emergency physicians and highly skilled nurses 24 hours, 7 days a week. We treat all emergency conditions (except major trauma) including cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery, general and aged care medicine, neurology and neurosurgery, oncology, intensive care, obstetrics, and paediatrics.
Our ED at Cabrini Malvern is accredited by the Australian College of Emergency Medicine (ACEM), and has been for 10 years. ACEM accreditation recognises Cabrini’s commitment to excellence in health care, safety and quality.
We welcome all patients, whether they are ‘walk in’, referred to us by their GP, or arrive via ambulance. Services include:
- 24 hour pathology services
- A dedicated radiology suite with 24 hour access to x-ray and CT
- After hours ultrasound, nuclear medicine, MRI for urgent / life threatening diagnosis
- Rapid access to Cabrini specialists for inpatient or outpatient follow up
We treat more than 24,000 adults, infants, children and adolescents every year. Our focus is to serve our community and provide our patients and their families with high-quality and compassionate care. Our follow-up phone call program after each patient is discharged from the ED reflects our dedication to providing high-quality care and enhancing the patient experience.
If you need to be admitted to hospital after presenting to the ED, your treating team will guide you through the next steps for your care. To ensure your admission is as fast and seamless as possible, the team in ED will organise your admission to the most appropriate Cabrini facility.
