With plans underway for a $9m development to expand the mental health services at Brisbane Waters Private Hospital, it has launched a recruitment campaign on the Central Coast.
The hospital is preparing for this growth, following the announcement by NSW Health this week around the resumption of elective surgery to level of 75% in Private Hospitals from Monday 7 February.
Brisbane Waters Private Hospital, Woy Woy, is seeking to expand, reinforce its team of more than 200 staff, with a diversity of roles available for everyone according to Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Director of Clinical Services (DCS) Debbra Ritter.
“We know there are skilled, highly trained clinical and non-clinical professionals on the Central Coast and we are committed to retaining and attracting new talent to the area,” Ms Ritter said.
“Every staff member has a role to play in contributing to each step of the patient journey which is why we are looking for empathetic, diverse and compassionate members of the community to join our team.
“By providing employment opportunities locally, we are striving to keep our talented and skilled community here on the Peninsula, providing care for patients at every age.
“Whether you are a Registered Nurse, an Endorsed Enrolled Nurse, or an Occupational Therapist, a Psychiatrist, a Chef, an Administration or a catering/cleaning professional, we have a range of career opportunities available at Brisbane Waters Private Hospital.”
The $9m development application which has been lodged could see the hospital add a new storey to its northern ward, and expand the ground level at the southern corner of the hospital.
With the focus on expanding the mental health services provision of the site’s Central Coast Clinic, the proposal will result in a 1,731sqm increase in floor area, 15 extra car parking spaces, 27 extra patient beds, and an increase in staff numbers equivalent to 12 full time roles.
According to Debbra Ritter, the proposal is part of a wider strategy to increase the service offering for the Central Coast and meet continued demand for premium mental health services across the region.
“The proposal comes at an exciting time in the hospital’s history and represents an opportunity to enhance the existing health services on the site, utilising space atop the existing hospital building,” Ms Ritter said.
“The development will contribute further economic investment in the Woy Woy Peninsula, while providing enhanced health services and employment opportunities for our growing community.
“Now is the time to join our hospital as we prepare to meet this increasing demand for services and support across the Woy Woy Peninsula.”
There are currently upwards of 15 vacancies currently available across areas of mental health, medical, surgical, operating theatre, administration, cleaning, catering and rehabilitation in permanent, part-time and casual roles.
According to Healthe Care Head of Regional Operations – North, Matt Kelly, the $9m development proposal presents an exciting opportunity for staff, doctors and community members alike.
“It’s an exciting time to be joining one of the most established private hospitals in the region and is home to the largest private mental health facility on the Central Coast,” Mr Kelly said.
“Over the last 48 years Brisbane Waters Private Hospital has grown alongside the community in the scope of services and opportunities we provide to the region.”
