Deakin Private Hospital is operated by iMH.
In 2023 Deakin Private Hospital opened as iMH's first private mental health hospital.
iMH stands for integrated mental health, representing the service’s special focus on integrating inpatient and out-of-hospital care in shorter stay mental health admissions. iMH compliments traditional Aurora Healthcare private mental health hospitals and expands the variety of services models that we offer.
Connection to Aurora Healthcare
A 50/50 joint venture Aurora Healthcare and Medibank partnership, iMH draws on the clinical expertise and operating success of Aurora Healthcare, a dedicated and focused specialty healthcare group with an Australian portfolio of 17 private hospitals and more than 1,000 mental health beds in Australia’s major cities and key regional areas. iMH compliments existing Aurora Healthcare services and expands our mental health hospital portfolio.
With two initial hospitals and a planned third site, iMH will offer patients access to a combined 153 new mental health beds and comprehensive out-of-hospital support. This new model of care is psychiatrist-led and patient-centred, with flexible care pathways to support greater access and choice in treatment options and settings.
Aurora Healthcare and Amplar Health share a vision to make integrated mental health services nationally accessible in Australia.
Vision, Mission and Purpose
A healthier and happier Australia – mind, body, spirit.
People at the heart of everything we do.
Your mental and physical health and wellness is a journey we take with you.
We are driven by compassion.
We are real people, we laugh when our patients laugh, we cry when they cry – even if they never see it. We conduct ourselves, always, with empathy and understanding, taking the time to listen, learn, support and serve.
We strive for quality.
Lives are in our hands, and we are acutely aware of that, every day. We pay attention to every detail, measure twice, ask the right questions – and we’re never silent when we know we should speak up. We want to be excellent, for ourselves, our team mates, and mostly, for our patients.
We let curiosity guide us.
We are people who openly embrace new ideas, concepts, technology, treatments – we always want to know more and to try new ways of approaching our work. While we don’t take unnecessary risks, we welcome change, improvement and innovation and know the power it can have in healing.
We work collaboratively.
Many hands make like work. We acknowledge we are not superman and we don’t provide care in a silo – we work with other integral team members, from a diversity of fields and backgrounds. We hear their expert input, we take on board their contribution and we cooperate, to enable better care.
Caring for our people and our community.
At iMH, we make health care personal. We know patients by names, not numbers, and we create calm and comfortable environments for you and our team, so everyone feels like a respected and acknowledged member of our unique healthcare community.
Delivering quality service and support.
Health care should always be provided with absolute dedication to excellence. We draw on Australia’s most celebrated specialists to guide our teams in providing the highest-quality care to every person who engages in treatment with iMH
Leading through innovation.
The thinking and treatments that underpin healthcare are continuously evolving. At iMH our team of specialists is committed to leading the way, with innovative, evidence-based approaches to mental health
Enabling genuine choice in healthcare.
We believe every person should feel in control of their own health care, so we make choice a central part of our service. This allows you to receive the right treatment, in the right location, at the right time.
Empowering better mental health management
When it comes to mental health care in Australia, our aim is to truly champion wellbeing, by giving patients easier, more convenient access to their choice of highly experienced and empathic clinicians, who provide the latest, tailored treatments.
