We're growing and we need you – Nursing opportunities in our new Paediatric Ward!

This is an exciting time to join Werribee Mercy (Public) Hospital. In 2018 our services grew with the opening of a new multistorey acute services building, including additional Theatres, Wards and an Adult Intensive Care Unit.

As part of our continued expansion to meet the needs of the local community, a general Paediatric Ward will be established in mid 2019.

We are excited to announce we are now accepting expressions of interest from Registered Nurses with Paediatric experience.
