A family friendly Victorian city, 2 hours’ drive from Melbourne, is requiring a Permanent Clinical Director – Critical Care Unit to join their University of Melbourne affiliated hospital.
The area boasts a diversity of cultural, outdoor and sporting activities seldom found anywhere else. Located only two hours north of Melbourne, the area features magnificent food and wine, glorious weather and all the attractions and activities you could imagine in a regional city. Golfers can enjoy some of Australia’s best and most challenging provincial courses with facilities second to none. The city offers adventure playgrounds, parks, lakes, museums, and a water park for the kids, making it very popular for families. Synonymous with food and fresh produce, it is little wonder the region is considered the food bowl of Australia.
It is a 280 bed multi-campus facility providing a broad range of hospital and community services to the region. With a catchment population of 160,000, it is the designated regional referral centre and regional trauma service. Its facilities include 210 acute beds, three operating theatres, a procedure room, a day procedure centre, an eight bed critical care unit, a state of the art simulation centre and an excellent library. The Hospital has 26,500 admissions, 7,800 surgical procedures, 1,200 deliveries and 34,000 Emergency Department presentations a year.
The Clinical Director Critical Care Unit will lead and direct the functions of the Critical Care Unit to ensure the achievement of clinical and quality standards including key access indicators, appropriate medical staffing, a suitable education and professional development program and ensuring financial targets for the Department are met.
The Clinical Director-Critical Care Unit will work closely with all clinical units to ensure optimal provision of services to ensure patient flow through the health service and will provide Clinical leadership over the delivery of the Service in partnership with the Nurse Unit Manager to ensure optimal outcomes to patients admitted to CCU.
The Clinical Director Critical Care Unit provides specialist intensive care, which may involve interaction with other specialists and is expected to ensure smooth patient flow for patients requiring CCU support.
