Werribee Mercy Hospital is undertaking a major recruitment drive ahead of a multimillion dollar redevelopment being completed later this year.
Werribee Mercy Hospital is currently hiring emergency nurses, mental health nurses and midwives to help care for the local community. The health service is also asking people interested in other roles at the hospital, both administrative and clinical, to visit careers.mercy.com.au to register their details.
Werribee Mercy Hospital Recruitment Adviser Jonelle Mais said the current recruitment drive is one of the largest the public hospital has embarked on since it opened in 1994.
“This is an exciting time to join the growing team at Werribee Mercy Hospital,” Ms Mais said.
“We encourage people living in the local area to apply for our current vacancies or register their interest for future job opportunities. For many people, having the opportunity to work at a hospital close to home; rather than commuting; provides the work-life integration that we understand is so important.”
The Victorian Government committed $85 million towards the redevelopment of Werribee Mercy Hospital in the 2015-16 State Budget. The highly anticipated expansion will deliver an extra 64 inpatient beds, including eight critical care beds and six new operating theatres.
The new adult psychiatric unit at Werribee Mercy Hospital is also complete and opening in stages. The Clare Moore building is an architecturally designed inpatient unit with 54 beds.
“We are a positive, values-driven workplace,” Ms Mais said.
“Werribee Mercy Hospital offers a variety of employee benefits including salary packaging, health and wellbeing initiatives, support for career progression and development, as well as a flexibility framework to support growth and work-life integration.”
Werribee Mercy Hospital is part of Mercy Health, which employs 9,000 people in health, aged care and home and community care across Australia.
Mercy Health employs people from many cultures and backgrounds, irrespective of their beliefs. The Catholic organisation has been recognised as an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency for the past 11 years.
