Frances Perry House History

Frances Perry was the wife of the first Anglican Bishop of Melbourne. From 1856 to 1876, Mrs Perry was the President of the Royal Women's Hospital. Frances Perry House first opened in 1970 as the Private Wing of the Royal Women's Hospital. In 1997 Health Care of Australia was awarded the tender to redevelop, lease and operate Frances Perry House as an independent private hospital, co-located with the Royal Women's Hospital. In 2005 Frances Perry House became part of Ramsay Health Care family.

We are a warm and friendly hospital which continually strives to provide a high quality and consistent service to the patients in our community. This is underpinned by the caring values of its outstanding staff.
