Gosford Private Hospital to recruit over 30 new healthcare workers

Gosford Private Hospital has launched a recruitment campaign, with its $32M redevelopment almost complete.

Director of Clinical Services, Jennifer McNamara, said as the hospital prepares to commence operations in the new developed spaces, it is seeking to expand its team of more than 650 staff and there are opportunities for a broad range of healthcare workers.

“We know there are a large number of highly health professionals on the Central Coast and we are committed to providing opportunities for locals and attracting new healthcare professionals to the area,” McNamara said.

“By providing employment opportunities locally, we strive to keep our talented and skilled community here on the coast, ensuring that local people have access to person-centred care in world class facilities, supported by staff that are invested in their local community.

“Whether you are a nurse, midwife, allied health professional or you have a non-clinical background we have a range of career opportunities available at Gosford Private Hospital.”

There are more than 30 positions available.

Nursing positions are available in medical, surgical, critical care, cardiac catheter lab, operating theatre, maternity and rehabilitation in permanent and casual roles.

Non nursing positions are available in hospital services and administration.

Within months, the growing hospital will see the addition of two new operating theatres, the installation of a $3.5M da Vinci Xi Robot as well as expanded surgical bed spaces and the conversion of shared rooms into private rooms.

There is also capacity for enhanced space for the future.

So far, a new fit-for-purpose post-operative recovery, day surgery department and a purpose-built maternity ward have been unveiled to the public.

Gosford Private Hospital Chief Executive Officer and Healthe Care Australia Regional Manager, Matt Kelly, said the redevelopment presents an exciting opportunity for staff, doctors and the Central Coast community.

“Over the last 41 years Gosford Private Hospital has grown alongside the community in the scope of services and opportunities we provide to the region,” Kelly said.

“The health sector is the largest employer on the Central Coast and Gosford Private Hospital is proud to be the largest private employer on the Central Coast.”
