More than 70 per cent of staff say Barwon Health is truly a great place to work. Here's a snapshot of what our people have to say about working at Barwon Health:
Ash, Workforce Relations Officer
I have progressed through a number of roles within the Workforce Directorate, beginning my career at Barwon Health as an intern whilst completing my university degree. Currently as the Workforce Relations Officer, I am exposed to a very wide range of human resource issues and enjoy helping people in striving for a positive and solution-focused outcome. I am lucky to work with a number of people within my team that are extremely knowledgeable, dedicated and experienced in Human Resources and Industrial Relations. As a people-orientated person, I love working with such a diverse range of people in different roles, skill mix and backgrounds and the challenges that my role brings on a day-to-day basis.
Working at Barwon Health as a midwife has allowed me to care holistically for women and provide continuity of care throughout their pregnancy and postnatally. Within this role I have been able to expand my knowledge and skills in all areas and work with an amazing maternity team who provide excellent care and continuous support to their patients.
Sally, Occupational Therapist
As an Occupational Therapist working as a leave reliever within the hospital I get to work in all specialty areas, I really enjoy the variety that each day brings. Working on the acute wards has given me a great appreciation of the importance of interdisciplinary teamwork and communication and I feel that Barwon Heath places a strong emphasis on this. My role in this acute setting is primarily to assist our patients regain their optimal level of function to achieve their goals and ultimately return home to live an independent lifestyle.
Stephan, ICU nurse
With my Intensive Care and Critical Care background from overseas, I have been fortunate enough to work at Barwon Health Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for the last 5 years. Geelong is an amazing city to live in and the work environment is very rewarding. Our 24 bed ICU is not only challenging at times but is also a great opportunity to witness amazing patient recoveries. I love the patient-nurse ratios, the technology available to us, the work flexibility, and the skill level of my colleagues.
