Welcome to Nursing and Midwifery at Western Health.
We are proud of the terrific teamwork that exists within Western Health and the care that we provide to our patients, which is underpinned by the Western Health values: Compassion, Accountability, Respect, Excellence and Safety.
A number of our nurses and midwives have been recognised at state and national levels for their excellence in care and focus on meeting our patients' needs. We celebrate and applaud their achievements and commitment.
We value and acknowledge the vital role our nursing and midwifery staff play in responding to needs of our culturally diverse community, as we strive to continually develop our nursing practice and develop innovative models of care.
Western Health manages four acute public hospitals - Footscray Hospital, Sunshine Hospital, Williamstown Hospital and Bacchus Marsh Hospital - as well as operating the Sunbury Day Hospital, Joan Kirner Women's and Children's at Sunshine Hospital and numerous community-based health services. This provides our staff with wonderful opportunities to work at more than one campus and gain experience, skills and expertise in more than one specialty or area of nursing, in addition to offering career pathways that can be tailored to an individual's needs.
