Epworth Geelong is Recruiting Again
Expanded services create new career opportunities
When Epworth Geelong opened in July, future growth was always on the cards for the new hospital in the long-term. That future is now already a reality. With the increased provision of specialist and surgical services, in particular, in the areas of orthopaedic surgery, neurosurgery and ophthalmology, the hospital is planning to open new wards before Christmas.
Since opening, Epworth Geelong has created 350 new jobs at the hospital.
We need professional nurses for careers at Epworth Geelong
Director of Clinical Services Leonie Lloyd is very excited about expanding the surgical services available at Epworth Geelong.
“It means more patients can have their specialist surgeries in Geelong, but also means we’re creating new employment opportunities for the health workforce,” Ms Lloyd said.
“Right now, we are hiring for more than 20 professional nursing roles. This provides a great opportunity for nurses in the region as well as for nurses wanting to relocate to Geelong for the lifestyle,” she added.
