NUM/CNC (Special Care Nursery)

About North West Hospital Health Service (NWHHS)
Covering a region of approx. 300,000 km2 the NWHHS delivers effective, high quality, and accessible public hospital and healthcare services to the residents of the Outback communities within North Western Queensland and the Gulf of Carpentaria.

As an employer we focus on positive health outcomes for the people of our region and embrace innovative ways to achieve this and support our staff to flourish in their careers.

If you are finding the urban healthcare environment a little uninspiring, you will likely find substantial satisfaction in the challenge of a diverse casemix and meaningful community engagement on offer when working at our regional, rural or remote facilities.

Living and working in Mount Isa
Rich and “hands on” experience in our region is well regarded as it represents a well-supported clinical experience which is enjoyed by the many who have passed through our facilities.

So, if you want a variety of real lifestyle and clinical experiences, work in diverse teams and locations, and receive quality support while remote practitioners impart their rural wisdom then consider North West as a place to work and live.

Many have come to visit the North West; fallen in love with the outback experience and stayed much longer than they thought because of the opportunities to make a positive difference.

Mount Isa is a great place to live and work!

Our HHS values professionalism, leadership capability, excellence and resilience in our staff.
