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.
