  • We support ongoing development with access to our education fund for professional development, internal development opportunities, and professional celebrations throughout the year. This includes access to Peri-operative educator support.
  • We have state-of-the-art facilities and equipment (we’re more like a hotel than a hospital), and we have a free car-park.
  • Our Executive Chef and his team fully cater morning and afternoon tea for all employees, and if you’re feeling like a restaurant-quality lunch… we heavily subsidise this for you.
